Travel Report: Chongwu Stone Arts Expo Park Beach, China.

February 2018. I should start this article by saying that I’ve cheated a little bit here. Strictly speaking I should have covered Chongwu Stone Arts Expo Park in just one article. But then I was so taken with the compound’s gorgeous little private beach that it felt wrong to cram in one or two photos […]

Travel Report: Chongwu Stone Arts Expo Park, China.

February 2018. The only reason to make the trek out to the isolated Chinese outpost of Chongwu is for this fascinating Stone Arts Expo Park, set between a section of the town’s ancient walls and a pretty strip of beach overlooking The Taiwan Strait.

Travel Report: Cool Spots Around Gulangyu Island, China.

August 2017. As amazing as the Chinese city of Xiamen undoubtedly is, the real inspiration for my trip to Fujian Province was the prospect of a visit to Gulangyu Island. Reached via a fifteen-minute ferry ride from Xiamen International Passenger Terminal, I was horribly unprepared for what an almighty battle it would be to get […]

Travel Report: Zhongshan Road – Xiamen, China.

August 2017. Even if shopping isn’t your cup of tea, a trip to Zhongshan Road is an essential part of any Xiamen itinerary. Teeming with stores, restaurants and cafes, this strictly pedestrianised road offers up a pleasing fusion of European architecture, chattering locals and determined, bug-eyed sales clerks armed with microphones.
