how to visit Amoy(xiamen) Sep 01, 2011
Well.."UN-Habitat Environmental Award" "NATIONSINBLOOM"....those are the titles of my hometown--Amoy(Xiamen).And in this review,let me show you how to enjoy this beautiful city deeply.

For the whole city

Tip 1:

When to come

As one of the most beautiful cities in China.Local xiameners prefer to enjoy the beautiful Delonix regia on June&July,the most flourish season.You can see that not only all campus,all the city is surrounded by these red trees.

Tip 2:

Some things need to bring and to take and to buy here

Xiamen is a small island so you can just go where you wanna go,especially buy a hand-made map when you come to Xiamen University and Gulang island.(one of the most attractive place in China,i will talk it later)

Xiamen is hot in the summer.So i believe it's necessary to take an umbrella and some things which protect you from being hurt by the sun.What is more,the mosquito repellent is also important.

Well,i really like to collect postcards so i want to tell you about it.

Postcards are various in the whole city.You can see and buy all kind of postcards in this island.Let me introduce some special postcards for you:Kraft paper, this kind of postcard can be found in a bookstore named O2 Sun(Guanghe shudian)in zhongshan road.And this kind of cards have views of Gulang island and xiamen university.Another kind of postcard is simple and you can buy them in University and other places(Be carefully!If you buy them in a tourist area ,you may buy them in a high price so you can bargain )

Also,you can seal lots of kinds of postmarks in the XingHua bookstore in the gulang islands(You can also buy postcards there)

Alomst all vistors come to Xiamen will go to Gulang island.And it is worth visiting.But sometimes it becomes too crowded,especially in some Chinese festivals(5/1,,10/1)So,it is wiser to come to the island in summer.And ships is the only transportation to help you go there.The fee is 8RMB.You should pay it when you come back from the island.And you can also go to the second floor of the ship so that you can have a better view.(Add 1 RMB)But the trip is only 6(or maybe 10 minutes),so you don't need to worry that it will waste the time.

Some places worth visiting:

1.Huandao Road

This is a coastal road.And it is the best place to enjoy the beautiful sea view.The road is starting from Xiamen Airport to Xiamen University.I think it is a good idea to ride a bike to feel the wind from the sea.Also,you can spend the whole afternoon to stay in the beach.If the weather is good,you can even see the Jinmen island(one island belongs to Taiwan).
