Gulangyu Island

Things to see and do Gulangyu Island Xiamen Fujian province China
Haoyue Beach, Gulangyu Island. August 2017.

Gulangyu is a stunning island in southeast China, a short ferry ride from the city of Xiamen in Fujian Province. There’s enough here for a full day of exploring, while a chic albeit pricy hotel scene means you can also stay the night and enjoy the place in peace mode after all the tourists flock back to the last ferry. So why not have a read of my articles on:

Haoyue Park

Lee House

Sweet Mao

and some handpicked choice spots from across the island.
