In the memorial hall, there are realistic wax figures, exquisite building models, automatic induction music player, intelligent introduction desk and picture viewing desk. There are crabs in the cracks of the rocks along the coastal road. The garden is beautiful, and the fish in the pond will jump out of the water and splash. Under the monument, there are pictures of plants and animals, working tools and so on. It's very interesting.
Two words - "Good Beauty. Really good value for money, 30 yuan can play three scenic spots, the key is less people, beautiful scenery, casual play. Opposite the memorial hall is the Return Hall. It's a pity to close the hall when we go, but the Aoyuan Garden and the former residence are close together, near the sea, and the scenery is really beautiful. I hope an aerial camera can record the beautiful scenery. With the sea breeze blowing, I listen to the tour guide's explanation and feel good. I also know Mr. Chen Jiageng's story, especially admire the overseas Chinese who have contributed to the construction of the motherland and Chen Jing, his brother. Mr. Xian regretted his early death. A very recommended scenic spot.
Return Garden was built in 1983 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Mr. Chen Jiageng's founding of Jimei School of Aesthetics. It covers an area of 9300 square meters. It's a park in Xiamen. The scenery around it is beautiful. Tourists can visit it free of charge.
This is the place where Mr. Chen Jiageng once lived. It was built in 1918. The former residence is a two-storey small building, which was destroyed by Japanese airplanes in 1938 and then rebuilt until it was completed. The former residence was renovated in 1980 according to the original pattern of the small building. The former residence is displayed according to his living conditions in his later years, and the relics such as manuscripts, clothes and daily necessities are treasured. The reception room, dining room, working room and bedroom on the second floor are all furnished as Mr. Chen was before his death.
Last year, on a trip to Xiamen on the fifth day of last year, I planned to go to Jimei Village on the last day. As a result, I had to give up painfully because of the limited time and the fact that the subway had not been opened yet. One year's missing, today finally opened a one-day tour of Jimei Village. The first stop of Jimei Village is to go to Mr. Chen Jiageng's former residence. It is not easy to get here, because the main focus of the bottle owners is on the seaside scenic spots, so they can only choose the bus, and walk more than 800 meters on the uphill road finally arrived. It's a beautiful three-storey building with Gothic style. The first and second floors are the visiting areas. In front of the building is the longan tree planted by Mr. Chen Jiageng himself. The stairs are very narrow and there is a visitor limit on the second floor. Two small pineapples were bought at the exit, much sweeter than the two small pineapples bought at Yongding Tulou last year, but they burned their throats after eating.
I have been to Jimei Village many times, but I have never been to Chen Jiageng's former residence, which is not far away. Walk along Shigu Road to Jiageng Road, turn right at the intersection of Jiageng Road and go up the slope. Not far away is Mr. Chen Jiageng's former residence. Without tickets, the two-storey small foreign building, a longan tree in front of the building, and the courtyard around it were repaired. I think it must have been a place of leisure and quiet. As the most famous returned overseas Chinese in Xiamen, Mr. Chen Jiageng has made great contributions to and promoted the running of schools. Four rooms on the first floor show the founding history of Jimei Village, collecting and displaying many old newspapers, magazines, photographs and other valuable materials. The second floor is Chen Jiageng's living room, which shows some old things he used in his life. It's good to take a walk.
Mr. Chen Jiageng's former residence is a unique single-storey building with an area of 4000 square meters, with white stone walls and green tile roofs. It is a representative building with the characteristics of southern Fujian. Mr. Chen Jiageng's bronze statue stands in front of the return hall.
Chen Jiageng has become the symbol of Xiamen. This old man is also very good and rich. But he donated all his money to the country and education. Like Xiamen University, Jimei Village was founded by him. His former residence is in Jimei Village. You can visit it when you come to Xiamen.
The main exhibition of Mr. Chen Ka-geng's school experience, we see the former residence is later rebuilt, the former was destroyed by the bombing. But Mr. Chen Jiageng, the former residence, has lived in the same place. It shows some of the things he used, generous and frugal.
