Xiamen

Xiamen is located in the north-east of China, on the shore of the Taiwan Strait. The city is situated both on islands and on the mainland. Quanzhou is in the north, and Zhangzhou is in the south. Xiamen is the largest port on the coast of the Taiwan Strait. The historic city center is located in the southwest of the island of the same name. Tourists can visit many Buddhist temples, art galleries, and well-groomed parks in the city. In Xiamen, many students study at the local university. The lively town leaves a charming impression, favorably differing from most Chinese cities. For example, on one of the islands, Gulangyu, the atmosphere is surprisingly calm, even bohemian. There are no cars here, and you can walk along the streets with lots of antique shops, and grab a snack with traditional Chinese treats.
