Located at the southeast coast of China, Xiamen is a tourist city in Fujian province. It's famous for its attractive seascape and delicious snacks. It has been an important port for centuries and became one of China's earliest Special Economic Zones in the 1980s. Apart from Shanghai and Hong Kong, comparing to other cities in China, Xiamen is definitely a very vibrant, affluent and modern place.

If you travel to Xiamen, the well-known Gulangyu Island, South Putuo Temple and other tourist areas like Jimei, Hulishan Battery, Wanshiyan, etc. are highly recommended. A sea tourist line is also available for people to enjoy the amazing scenery of many beautiful small islands around.
