Visit Xiamen

Things to see and do in Xiamen

Visit Xiamen.

Xiamen is a fascinating island city in Fujian Province, southeast China. I rolled into town in August 2017 with a hard earned five night vacation from my teaching job in nearby Zhejiang Province.

I’d been working all the hours under the sun that summer. Thus the trip to Xiamen was a reward to myself. And what a reward it turned out to be!

Consistently voted one of China’s most liveable cities, I found myself instantly charmed by Xiamen. Clean, green and with a perfect balance between vibrant and chilled, it certainly ticked all the boxes for a memorable city break.

Furthermore, there are a stack of sights. I found myself visiting a nineteenth century fortress and an urban park set around an old railway line. Moreover, I took the time to visit one of China’s most famed universities and sampled the many culinary delights of Zhongshan Road.
