About Xiamen

Xiamen is a charming port city on China's southeast coast that features beautiful palm-lined beaches, botanical gardens, temples and welcoming tea shops. Xiamen cruises often include guided walking tours of the city, as well as temple visits and trips to the nearby pedestrian-only island of Gulangyu -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It's a five-minute ferry ride from Xiamen to Gulangyu. Once there, discover brightly colored colonial architecture, the Shuzhuang Garden and plenty of places to shop. Known as Piano Island, Gulangyu is home to several celebrated Chinese pianists.
