Itinerary

Meet your guide and driver in your hotel lobby at your chosen departure time and board on the comfortable, air-conditioned car, enjoy a short car ride and arrive the Nanputuo Temple. The temple grounds include multiple temples, gardens, lots of carvings, a beautiful representation of China’s history. You can learn more about Buddhism and culture along the way up and get a sense of inner peace during visiting these well-kept temples within. Follow your friendly guide and head to Huli Mountain Fort. It used to be a fort that overlook the waterway formed by Xiamen and mainland China. It was used during the Qing dynasty to prevent aggressors from landing into mainland and now is maintained as a heritage site for visitors to view the canons used and explore the layout of the fort. While most history in China is based in ancient times, this fortress tells its story of pre and post-colonial times, opium wars and the small part it played in shaping this region of modern China. Take your time to read some of the plaques to get a better understanding. Then spend ample time enjoying your lunch. After taking a short break, your private driver will take you to Xiamen International Cruise Center to take a ferry to the most must-see scenic spot – Gulangyu Island.

Enjoyed the walk on the bridge along the coast, with great view of the sea and surrounding landscape.
