Angie安琪Not to miss attraction in Xiamen!Not only because of being Unesco World Heritage, but Gulangyu Island is plenty of nice architecture, history, nice views and wonderful beaches and streets. Reachable from Xiamen International Ferry Terminal in 20min. The island has two wharfs, one at the east and one at the west. One day visit is is a good idea to get an impression, but I guess in peak season is worth to spend a night and have more time to enjoy the sea and do further sightseeing.Must visit: Beaches, Riguang Cliff with the stunning views and the temple at the top, the parks, the area of former consulates and its buildings. There are many options to eat on the island and buy some local products or souvenirs.
_We***56Visiting Sunlight Rock in Gulangyu Island was one of the best experiences, had too much fun and was amazing environment and scenery. The ticket for Sunlight rock is 50¥ per-adult, but there are some offers that you pay about 90¥ per-adult and you visit 4 places with one ticket. Going there, you will be taking a ferry from Xiamen to Gulangyu and you will be walking all around the Gulangyu island. It is super nice and fun walking there.
旅游达人000001A great national hero, mainly the huge statue of Zheng Chenggong, with inscriptions inside, stand up to the opposite Xiamen for a panoramic view, especially facing the Twin Towers, the promenade is also very good
The Gulangyu island, also known as Kulangsu, is a world cultural heritage site. This island concentrates a lot of history in its 2km, popularly referred to a fairytale island.
The three main settlements date from 1900s. Yanzaijiao keeps its ancient authenticity, dating from Qing dynasty, while Lu’erjiao has more European influence. While island has few residents, most inhabitants travel daily. This island is full of shops, inns, restaurants and souvenirs. A sea of people surrounded by water.
For short background, Xiamen and Kulangsu island were the main maritime sino-foreign key location for centuries, with huge development for this island. After WWII, Japanese soldiers occupied Jinmen island, with brought thousands of refugees to Kulangsu. Later, during Pacific war in 1941, Japanese troops occupied the island, restructured several areas, and imposed Japanese culture. Later the island was recovered for Chinese, leaving an amazing mixture of cultures, architecture and this odd environment around.
Bikes and cars are not allowed. Roads are very small and landscape can be very tiring. Although, there is so much to see and admire: architecture, temples, parks, gardens, beaches, shops inside old buildings.
Get there- Take a ferry from Xiamen’s Lun Du terminal.
⛴ Service hours: Everyday, available 24 hours. Takes around 8 minutes to reach the island, and ferry Can get very crowded.

Xiamen is a cool coastal city in Fujian.
Once a treaty port known to the world as Amoy, it retains much of the architecture from that time. The main attraction is Gulangyu, an island just off the coast which was a foreign concession where Europeans and Chinese who'd made fortunes abroad built comfortable villas.
There is a short ferry crossing to Gulangyu directly from the Xiamen waterfront but it's only available to Xiamen residents. Tourists must go to the cruiseship terminal to take a significantly pricier and longer ferry. This is annoying, but it's still worth visiting the island. Set aside a whole day to walk around the seawall and visit some of the museums in the main town.

Gulangyu Island has no cars on the island, and the intersections that extend in all directions will not get lost. You can also forget the direction and get lost in every strange alley to understand the beauty of Gulangyu.
The Gulangyu Island at 6 o'clock in the morning gives people a feeling of neatness and quietness. There is no flow of people in the daytime. The buildings of the nations are covered with lights. The outlines of the Bagua House and Sanyi Hall in the dark are still clear and silent. Quiet, only to explore the quiet path behind the hustle and bustle.
The location of the Gulangyu Island is suitable for watching the sunrise. If you want to avoid the crowds watching the sunrise, and don't want to buy tickets to climb the Sunlight Rock on the mountain, the best choice for the Dade Kee Bath. The entire Shimao Twin Towers, Yanwu Bridge and Peace Pier are all in sight.
