Some tips for travelling Xiamen by short term DIY tour
By ADAMYOUNG | 9/13/2014 9:43:00 PM

I have some tips for travelling Xiamen for these gus who want to go there by DIY tour:
1\ Hotel Booking: The best location should be around South Putuo Temple. Becasue these major spots are near around, and you can take buses easily.
2\ Time arrangement: You can spent about 4-5 days to explore Xiamen's major spots, which I means: South Putuo Temple, Gulangyu Island, and Binhai Road, Other spots are very small in my mind. If you have enough time, you can also explore some other spots.
You can explore South Putuo Temple and Xiamen University in the first day;
And then one or two days will spent in Gulangyu Island;
Then you can ride bicycle with your friends on the Binhai Road, and there are many facilities you can play along that way.
3\Dont forget to enjoy the wonderful food when you explore the city.
Here is a street named Taiwan Delicious Food Street near Gulangyu. You can eat many kinds of foods in that street after explore Gulangyu Island.

Hey, just a quick note for anyone thinking of hopping the border for a week or so...I recently came across budget airline Airasia which flies return from Xiamen to Bangkok for under 1000RMB...may be worth a try! Maybe the new Ryanair?

Usually called the Film City..but its fancy calling it little beijing coz the replica is so wonderfully crafted.

U can savour a simple meal inside while taking different snapshots of the place.

There is a yard for horsebackriding and u can took photos for only 20rmb.

It is also a nice experience to walk the back streets in Xiamen City. You feel safe even at 10 in the evening. Most salespeople are patient and accomodating. And the merchandise quality is of high quality.

choosing a hotel

My choice is a middle class (3 star) hotel. This time I chose Xiamen Plaza which is along major transportation routes and next to a bus terminal and a popular shopping center with exciting fast foods and Walmart. The manager-Ms. Sue is also English speaking.

From Xiamen to Yongding for seeing the famous earth house (tulou), you can just take the long-distance bus at the Hubin South Bus Station and Wucun Bus Station, and about 4-5 hours the earth hourses group will appear in your eyes.

We strongly recommend that you buy a city map for RMB 5 and Amoymagic by Dr. Bill Brown for RMB 30 at Xinhua bookstore at Zhongshan Rd. It easier to get around. Bus rides cost RMB 1. Pay upon embarking.
