Xiamen City Guide

Xiamen, the most popular destination among Chinese domestic tourists, often gets overlooked by international travelers who are more familiar with the big cities like Beijing, Shanghai or Xian. The island formerly known as Amoy is one of the cleanest and most attractive cities in Fujian, a province considered to be one of the most beautiful in China.

Xiamen became a foreign concession in 1903, and by the 1930s, nine consulates and more than 500 foreigners called the small island of Gulangyu just off the coast of Xiamen home.
