About Kinmen

Kinmen, or Golden Gate, County is made up of more than a dozen islands. It is opposite to Xiamen and has earned the reputation of “the park on the sea” because of its fine and beautiful natural landscape. At present, Kinmen has left behind the flames and smoke of its old battlefields and become a tourist attraction. Juguang Tower and Zhaishan Tunnel have become symbols of that past time. The pace of life in Kinmen is slow and unassuming. There are towns, ancient tombs, delicious food, military history and some artwork. Kinmen is a place where you can never have too much fun no matter how many times you visit.

Shopping guide | Xiamen on the other side of the Golden Gate, cost-effective food recommended RMB and Taiwan dollar exchange rate of about 1:4.58, so in the Golden Gate a dollar equivalent to 4.58 Taiwan dollars, a sudden 100 yuan will become 458 Taiwan dollars ~ from From Xiamen to Kinmen, you only need to take a boat for about 30 minutes, many times a day. So you don't have to spend a lot of money to go to Taipei to taste Taiwanese. Here are a few recommended Golden Gate must eat old-fashioned specialty: 1. Kinmen Gong sugar: Jinmen Gong sugar is a famous traditional specialty of Kinmen. The peanut kernel, white sugar and maltose are punched by wooden sticks through traditional folk crafts. Recommended: pig's foot tribute sugar, bamboo leaves tribute sugar. 2. The noodle of the generous beard. Those who like traditional flavors may wish to pick the "Old Morning Line". In addition, several types of noodles combined with Kinmen's native products, such as "Sorghum Noodle", "Shantou Noodle" and "Sweet Noodle", have a strong Yeouido flavor, which is only available in Kinmen. The generous Hushou Bo has a unique sauce prepared by the noodle line. There are many flavors, such as refined mushroom oil onion, refined spicy sauce, Qing Dynasty royal sauce, vegetarian spicy bean paste, garlic spicy bean paste, etc. It is a great partner for pasta. 3. The new store sorghum handmade egg rolls, live production, and now there are sorghum ice cream cones. I also like their sorghum wine chocolate balls.
