About Xiamen

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. Xiamen's scenic spots are mainly concentrated in the southern part of the main island and on Gulangyu Island. You can go to Huandao Road and go for a bike ride in the refreshing ocean breeze, or go to Xiamen University to relive the old campus life. You can also visit pedestrian-only Gulangyu to get a taste of the artist's life.

Xiamen
Xiamen is a simple city that is yet refined and beautiful. This is seen when the radiance of the moon shines down on the surface of Xiamen’s sea. The turquoise waters perform a rippling dance that intoxicates and ensnares the senses. It is as long as a dream, as flowing as the wind, and as delicate as love itself. Of course, missing Gulangyu is the same as not going to Xiamen. This is the preferred destination of the hipster type. New duplexes near Xiamen University in Zengcuo’an Village on Huandao Road. Reasons to go: Convenient transportation, an exquisite and elegant room in one of the few small novel apartments by the seaside of Xiamen University.

Shangri-La | The Land Closest to the Heavens | Not to be Missed: Autumn in Pudacuo Shangri-La: the Lost Horizon.

The devout on their knees, kissing the sacred ground, mountains and waters - such a sight has hardly changed in the millions of years that have passed.And those clouds hanging by the mountains peaks? They look like they can be blown away with just the gentlest breath of air. Recommended route: There are many holiday routes one can embark on throughout Yunnan. The Shangri-La trail tops them all.This is the site where three famous rivers of China run parallel to each other — Yangtze, Lancang and Nujiang rivers.You'll need at least a week to thoroughly soak up the magnificent views.
