Introducing Xiàmén

With its quaint historical buildings, neat streets and a charming waterfront district, you can understand why Xiàmén, also known to the West as Amoy, is a popular holiday destination for Chinese flashpackers.

The highlight of Xiàmén is to visit the tiny island of Gǔlàng Yǔ, once the old colonial roost of Europeans and Japanese. The seaside gardens, meandering alleys and beautiful colonial villas ooze an old-world charm rarely seen in Chinese cities.
