Tea houses on Gulangyu Island (People's Daily Online / Xue Meng)

Top things to do in Xia’Men – Spend a meaningless afternoon in a quiet tea house

Top things to do in Xia’Men – Find your unique gift or postcard for your friend in one of the unique shops

The most special thing about Gulangyu Island is probably that every shop is so unique and shopping becomes one of the things you don’t want to miss. Tea house, grocery store, sweet shop, pancake shop, book store… Which one of them is your favorite? You’ll have to decide on your own by experiencing all. There are many cute souvenirs you can buy and beautiful postcards you can write for your friends and families. Sitting in a tea house with a cup of tea and some local cakes or snacks, reading someone else’s message on the store’s diary and writing down your own can also be really enjoyable.
