Located in southeastern China, Fujian Province is yet another fascinating region of the country I’ve been lucky enough to explore. There are a whole host of unique sights here, more often than not set among stunning landscapes. However, it’s rare to see Fujian pop up on any China best of lists. As a result, this is a great area to get away from the tourist buzz and conquer some peaceful spots off the beaten track.
Based in neighbouring Zhejiang Province for two years, I was perfectly placed for several expeditions out to Fujian. Consequently, I’ve had some amazing adventures here. So come with me to see one of China’s unique island cities, along with its neighbouring outpost of opium-war-era colonial villas. Furthermore, I made it out to an isolated coastal town and its under-the-radar sculpture park. I also visited temples and mosques, climbed a Taoist mountain and met the old women of a traditional oyster shelling village.
