What people are saying:

The scenery on the island is very beautiful, all kinds of architectural styles have, the sunrise on the sunstone is good, you can also see the twin towers, (World Trade Mansion) The things on the island are more expensive, because they are all manual transportation, the island is cooler in the morning and evening, hot at noon, I don't think it is very fun, Because the masks were worn throughout the epidemic and the body was wet (too sweaty) and it was foggy and extremely hot in the afternoon in Xiamen, so it was not comfortable to play.

Additional Information


Gulangyu Island is a tiny island located on the estuary of the Chiu-lung River, facing the city of Xiamen. It is a Unesco World Heritage Site that used to be an important window for Sino-foreign exchanges during the 19th and 20th century.

You can hike up the Sun Rock to overlook the whole island, take a walk in the Shuzhuang Garden (including the Piano Museum) which is one of the finest Jiangnan classical gardens, visit the Hao Yue Garden containing architectures from the Ming Dynasty (including a statue of national hero Zheng Chenggong), the organ museum, and the international letter carving art museum.
