What people are saying:

We loved this wonderful island - short trip by ferry. There are so many good food and drinks options, great scenery and some buildings were amazing. You need a few hours to truly enjoy. Beware as some places are pretty steep for older people or those with walking difficulties. a walking / hiking stick is advisable. The tunnel is quite interesting with many people leaving and writing messages on the walls 😊

Additional Information

Introduction

Gulangyu Island is a tiny island located on the estuary of the Chiu-lung River, facing the city of Xiamen. It is a Unesco World Heritage Site that used to be an important window for Sino-foreign exchanges during the 19th and 20th century. The island is a popular attraction for architecture enthusiasts, providing a mixture of different architectural styles including Traditional Southern Fujian Style, Western Classical Revival Style and Veranda Colonial Style. You can hike up the Sun Rock to overlook the whole island, take a walk in the Shuzhuang Garden (including the Piano Museum) which is one of the finest Jiangnan classical gardens, visit the Hao Yue Garden containing architectures from the Ming Dynasty (including a statue of national hero Zheng Chenggong), the organ museum, and the international letter carving art museum. Don't forget to send yourself a postcard from the future at local stores!
