Lovely tranquil place to have a stroll. Lots of trees give it shade so great if, like me, you don’t like things too hot! Only cost €3 each to go in, guide leaflet in your language was useful and lots of exotic and weird looking plants and trees. Well worth a visit for an hour or so - really strange to see the “big brothers” of our house plants!A lovely place to walk and browse the many different trees and shrubs with a water pond gallery also. Some different and prettily flowering examples from around the world.
Could do with some TLC and maybe even a little refurbishment in some areas, but reasonably enchanting for a small entrance fee.

The botanical gardens in Xiamen are massive and can keep you occupied for hours on end!
We spent about half a day exploring the different sections of garden including the bamboo forest and the succulent forest 🌵🏜
There are over 1.8 million trees and 4,000 different kinds of flora in the garden and each area is just as beautiful as the next.
You’ll fall in love with the changing scenery as you walk through the winding paths of this gigantic park.
Fun fact: If you get there before 7am, admission is free!
Took a break from the cold, rainy Shanghai weather to spend a couple of days in sunny Xiamen!
From rooftop cafes, to the massive botanical garden, to Jimei School Village, there are no shortage of sights to see in Xiamen.
One unexpected find was the Railway Cultural Park. What started off as me following an abandoned railway track, wound up being an hour walk along it through changing sceneries with locals playing various games in this makeshift park. I stopped walking after an hour but the railway park continued on as far as the eye could see 🛤
This was my second time in Xiamen and I def see myself going again!
