Things to Do

April is a good month for touring the Xiamen area before the big crowds arrive in May and the monsoon weather begins. The weather in April is cool, and you can go out into the country or parks to enjoy the spring scenery and the flowers.

GulangyuGulangyu Island

Take an excursion to Gulangyu Island: The small island is noted for restaurants, tea and coffee parlors, tourist shops, and old colonial architecture that dates from before WWII when the island was a foreign settlement. You can take a trip to the small island by ferry in about 5 minutes from Xiamen.

The island is one of the city's main attractions. You can walk or take one of the electric carts. Explore the narrow lanes and see the seaside scenery. Automobiles are not permitted because it is a pedestrian area.

Mount Wuyi Natural Park: There is a noted national park in Fujian Province where you can tour by vehicle or hike and backpack. There are numerous stairways for some good stair-climbing exercise. If you are not in shape for this, you could tour by car or take a river rafting trip.

There is a spectacular scenic area around Nine-Bend Stream of exceptional scenic quality. Red sandstone formations stand out against the skyline and are hundreds of meters high. The area is also a noted wildlife sanctuary.

Danxia Landform Park: This other natural park in Fujian Province is also noted for unusual geological formations. You can take a boat trip among the caves and rock formations, and get out to walk and get in among the caves, cliffs, and waterfalls.

Shoulder Travel Season

April is generally a medium travel month. Hotel room prices and prices for flight and train tickets are moderate. Why wait in line to get tickets? We can order and perhaps deliver your tickets to you by an easy way, and maybe even get you a discount.
