The weather is ideal for tourists! The weather is pleasant with generally sunny days and minimal cloud cover. See the current weather and forecast>>

Clothing: The weather is cooler, and you should bring shirts and light jackets or sweaters.

Things to Do

Enjoy the nightlife: During the cool and dry evenings, you can dine on the good food at the expat-oriented restaurants or explore the street markets. It is called one of China's cleanest cities. So you can enjoy the environmental quality during your trio.

You can enjoy the fine fall evenings with cool breezes by the Lu River or on the seashore. A prime way to relax in the evening during a business trip or a tour is to take an evening river cruise. While enjoying something to eat or drink, you can see some local highlights and the city lights from the boat.

Climb up Sunlight Rock: The highest point on Gulangyu Island is a favorite tourist location. From the top, you can see the scenery of the island, the sea, and the other small islands around. You can also look cross to Xiamen.

For an enjoyable short hike, climb up the small hill that is also called Dragon Head Hill. At the top, you'll find a Buddhist temple that was originally built hundreds of years ago during the Ming Dynasty. There is an unusual rock outcropping on top, a garden and an aviary. Instead of walking up, you can also enjoy a cable car ride to the top.

See Xiamen University: For local sightseeing, we recommend the campus of Xiamen University. The university was established before WWII with overseas Chinese funds, and there are beautiful buildings and an attractive lake. It is a good place for a pleasant stroll.

While there, you can see the anthropology museum (人类学博物馆, Rénlèixué Bówùguǎn). The university is on the eastern side of the city near a big woodland area. Bus 1 goes to the campus' gate.

Shoulder Travel Month

November is the start of the low travel season. After about the middle of the month, the city is less crowded. In the second half of the month, the crowds are reduced at the main attractions such as Gulangyu Island. So you can enjoy the outdoor attractions and market streets more.

Good discounts on hotel rooms and flights are easy to get, and you can save a lot of money when traveling in November. If you book flight and train tickets through us, we might be able to find a discount and deliver the tickets to you conveniently. Why wait in lines at stations just to get tickets?

However, during the first half of the month, hotel rates are still high, and rooms might be difficult to reserve. By our long experience in the area, we can help you book a hotel room that you'll like and perhaps even find a discount.

Xiamen Tours

We can help you enjoy touring the region. China Highlights has years of experience planning both group and personal tours in China. We can tailor-make a tour of the region to suit your needs. Just tell us your plans.

Hi Sansai, I suggest that you take the bullet train to Quanzhou. It is much more convenient than the bus. It takes only 0.5 hrs and the price is about RMB20-25.
