Xiamen
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.

_We***33Gulangyu was refreshingly fun. A good time to go is later in the afternoon as most people start to leave around 4. The place looks lovely in the evening as well. A lot to explore and do with some interesting history and architecture.

D38***56This theme park is absolutely amazing, as soon as you enter you will be greeted by a giant majestic water fountain. There are sections for which part of the park so there are separate ticketing queues. there is three parts of it a water park part a amusement park part and an oriental theater part. The water park contained lots of water slides and a playground for children that is filled with water, slides, and water sprinters. There was a okay selection of slides but i wouldn’t complain the fact that there is three parts. There was an area where there was a large pool where everyone can swim. Every 45 minutes the lifeguards put on waves into the water to make it more amusing like your actually in the ocean. The oriental theater was not just one theater but many. The buildings are designed to look like ancient majestic Chinese buildings. The reason is because most of the theaters show animated ancient Chinese stories. There was also a few parts that showcases animated kids short movies. There is also a drop tower in the middle of the oriental theater section. It is inside a tall Chinese style building. Left of it you can also enter the water park part. I didn’t get to check out the theme park section sadly because we ran out of time. But it was absolutely fantastic it is my favorite theme park in China. It definitely deserves 5/5.

Rock Monument
Observation Deck
_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.

Science & Technology Museum
D38***56It was really good there were tons of exhibits. What sets this museum apart from many is that it lets you get hands on with the exhibits. Threre were tons of kids there and they were having a fun time because you can put your hands to. For instance there was a robot that can make drawings of photos you can take there. There was also like this 720 degree VR simulation where you get to sit in a robot like car and it will spin and move around according to what’s happening on the VR headset screen. The queue was not long to get tickets maybe around 10 minutes maximum when I was there. After all it was an amazing experience.
