Xiàmén University

Historic Building in Xiamen

Next to Nánpǔtuó Temple, the Xiàmén University, which was established with overseas Chinese funds, has beautiful republican-era buildings and an attractive lake. It’s a good place for a pleasant stroll. The on-campus anthropology museum (人类学博物馆; Rénlèixué Bówùguǎn) boasts two large ‘boat coffins’ unearthed from a cliff in Wǔyí Shān. The campus entrance is next to the stop for bus 1.
