Huandao Road, also called Island Ring Road, is one of the most popular sites in Xiamen, south China's Fujian province.

The 31-kilometer Huandao Road, which winds through the south and east shore of Xiamen Island, is a green belt that offers tourists an ideal place to cycle along beautiful seashores.

The best part of the island ring road starts from the Baicheng Beach from Xiamen University to the Xiamen International Conference and Exhibition Center, a 10-kilometer ring road from south to east.

You may rent a bike to cycle the road for about two hours. You also can visit some interesting sites like Hulishan Fortress, parks along the ring road and walkway boards by the sea. If you have strong legs, you can walk along the island ring road, a paradise for leisure travelers.

The island has a subtropical monsoon climate with mild weather all year round. It is hot in summer, as the temperature in July and August is as high as over 30 degrees Celsius; the lowest temperature in winter is 10 degrees Celsius. The average temperature is 21 degrees Celsius. Spring and autumn is the best travel season.
