Xiamen Facts

Xiamen is a port city on China’s southeast coast, across a strait from Taiwan. It encompasses 2 main islands and a region on the mainland.

Formerly known as Amoy, it was a British-run treaty port from 1842 to 1912.

Many Europeans and Japanese lived on Gulangyu, today a vehicle-free island with beaches and meandering streets lined with old colonial villas.

Xiamen University, founded in 1921, is known for its green spaces. 

Nanputuo Temple dates from the Tang Dynasty and sits at the base of Wulao Mountain, with trails to the top.
