About Xiamen

Xiamen (xià mén 厦门) is a well-known tourist port city in the Southeast coast of China. It is one of the Cleanest Cities of China, the Garden Cities of China, the National Environmental Protection Model Cities, and the best sightseeing cities in China. Not only being wealthy with travel resources, Xiamen has also temperate weather, fast and convenient transport and communication, and complete travel establishments. All makes Xiamen one of the most suitable cities for investors and tourists in China.

Gulangyu, separated from Xiamen by the 500-metre-wide Egret River, with an area of 1.87 square kilometers, enjoys a laudatory title “Garden on the Sea”. The original name of the islet was Yuan Zhou Zi. In the Ming Dynasty it was renamed Gulang, meaning ''drum waves", because the holes in the southwestern reefs hit by the waves make sounds like the drum beating.
