Things to Do

Take a trip to Gulangyu Island: On one of the cloudy or foggy days, you can take a trip to the small island that is about 5 minutes from Xiamen by ferry and enjoy the restaurants or tea shops and see the old architecture. It was a foreign settlement before WWII, and it is one of the city's main attractions.

In March, the weather warms up enough to enjoy the outdoor attractions, and the gardens start to bloom. You can walk around or take one of the electric carts. Automobiles are not permittedon Gulangyu. It is a pedestrian area now. You can explore the narrow lanes and see the seaside scenery.

Overseas Chinese Museum: On a rainy day, you can head for the local museum for a few hours. Fujian was the homeland of a large percentage of the Chinese laborers who went to work overseas in the 19th century. Find out about the thousands of Chinese who died to build the North American railroads, what their lives were like, and what those few who returned had to say about their experience. People from Fujian spread out to the entire world, and you can learn about their history here. Entrance is free.

Enjoy the restaurants: Enjoy the local high quality international restaurants that the expats have pioneered. Try the local gourmet Chinese seafood too. Xiamen is the richest small cities in China, and as one of the original special economic zones, you can expect good service and good quality food.

Low Travel Season

March is generally a low travel month. The festive holiday season ends in February, and in March, people generally buckle down back to work. Hotel room prices and prices for flight and train tickets moderate. But why wait in line to get tickets?
