Xiamen is a city well suited for walking, becoming lost in thought and basking in the sun. It has become a haven for creative, artistic people and those who want to live a more relaxed life. This “garden on the sea” has the unique feel of a hometown for Chinese living abroad. There is delicious seafood and Fujian cuisine all around, and the exotic architecture of Xiamen gives it a distinct character.
