"Jinjiang Inn, Jimei University Villlage (Xuecun)"
Rented bicycle from hotel for ride to Jiageng Memorial Park and Museum and surrounding seafront area.
A 10 min walk to the commercial and financial area along Jiyuan Lu which is clean and orderly. Located here is the Long Distance Bus Terminal which is next to Vanda Shopping Complex.Took an express bus to Xian Yu, a mini bus to Pan Tou and a motorcycle ride to Xin ZhengCun.
At main Local Bus Stand, took one of the numerous buses to Xiamen City. Most efficient way to tour and discover Xiamen. Be prepared with the bus fare which is mostly 2 Yuan/Renmenbi.
From here took a bus to the ferry terminal to Gulang Yu, a beautiful island and popular tourist attraction. A round trip ferry ride is only 8 Yuan which includes a running commentary in Chinese. Be prepared to walk to the numerous places of interest, mostly garden parks and a museum dedicated to Zheng Chengong. There are some quaint and well designed hotels catering to honeymooners.
A memorable meal at Hu Li District. Had a juicy T-bone complete with bulls-eye topped pasta to help wipe the delicious black pepper sauce. Also must try, cheesy sausages on chicken leg bone. Drinks, pastries, salads, fruits come free.
Had Earl Grey at Westin Hotel and read latest English language newspaper. Impressive service and ambience for someone wearing a T-shirt, jeans and dirty sneakers.
