xiamen gaoqi airport to quangang?

by chngbhh

anyone know how to get to fengwei town of quangang from xiamen airport by public transport or taxi?

RE: xiamen gaoqi airport to quangang?

by ellyse

Sorry, I can't locate Fengwei nor Quangang even after extended poring over the map of Fujian province. Do you have the Chinese characters for these names?

Ok, I'll look for the place later, gotta rush to the train station now and get some tickets.

Not just that, but also the fact that you're looking for some obscure, non-touristy place in Fujian province.

"the fact that you're looking for some obscure, non-touristy place in Fujian province." what has that got to do with singaporean? so did u manage to find out? i have relatives there, want to surprise them by going there by myself. =p


RE: RE: xiamen gaoqi airport to quangang?

by ellyse

I can't find either on the maps, still. :(
It's getting popular for Malaysian and Singaporean Chinese to come back and visit relatives, that's all.

RE: RE: xiamen gaoqi airport to quangang?

by chngbhh

should be very near quanzhou. can try checking places around quanzhou?
If really cant find.. den ok LOR =( thx ;)

RE: RE: xiamen gaoqi airport to quangang?

Ok, finally found it on the map at http://www.qzsq.com/freecontent+index.id+6.htm it's in the pinkish part in the top right hand section of the map. I saved a copy of the map, so if that doesn't show up properly, let me know by VTMail.
You could apparently take a taxi all the way from the airport, but I think that'd be very expensive! How many of you are there? There're also apparently buses to Quanzhou area, then you'll need to find an onward bus to at least Quangang.
The new long-distance bus station in Quanzhou (泉州中心客运站, don't go to any other one) should have buses. In the event that you can't find direct buses to Fengwei, try for Quangang; if still not possible, get a bus to Shishi (石狮) and then change again. I suspect it'll take very long though... not such a wonderful idea if you're all carrying loads of bulky luggage.

The phone number of the Quanzhou long-distance bus station mentioned above is 86-595-28989908/28989909/22582914/22505177.

Travel Tips for Xiamen

Siestas in China?

by Marisola

Yes, that's right. It's called xiuxi or wushui in Chinese, and it is very commonplace. Just after lunchtime, you will find most Chinese taking a nap. Anywhere will do! I have seen the workmen resting in the shade on the grass or even on the pavement. Shop workers simply place their heads on the counter in their shops! Most schools and some offices regularly turn off the lights for half an hour after lunch for naptime! After lunch, try a Siesta in China!

Buddhist Temple : Nanputuo

by SLLiew

Nanputuo is a popular and must-see Buddhist temple in Xiamen. Went there twice myself.

The history of the temple dated back a thousand years to the Tang Dynasty. It is now a popular place to pray for local and overseas Chinese tourists. There is a series of prayer halls built on the slope of the hill and so wear a pair of good shoes to climb the steps.

There are some giant boulders where Chinese characters and sayings are carved out from the rock. Nice views from the top. Just watch your steps.

You caan buy lucky charms at the souvenir shop.

There is a nice lotus pool at the front of the temple if you rather wait and enjoy the views while others in your group climb the steps.

"Overlooking Kinmen, Taiwan"

Althought not visable here, this photo overlooked Kinmen, Taiwan. We witnessed huge explosions (50-storey high) in quick successions on 1st December 2004. Taiwan was showing off its military might.

The Chinese has not learnt the humiliating lessons over the last 800 years of foreign rules where they was weakened by in-fightings while being manupulated by foreign powers much smaller that themselves.

HISTORY

It is said that in the ancient time, flocks of egrets (Bailu in Chinese) migrated to dwell on Xiamen Island from time to time and that is why people call Xiamen "Ludao" (Island of Egrets) and Xiagu Strait "Lujiang" (River of Egrets).

The first settlement of people on Xiamen Island dates back to the latter part of the New Stone Age. That was three to four thousand years ago. And the recorded history dates back to the middle period of the Tang Dynasty, which was more than 1140 years ago. During the Tianbao Period of the Tang Dynasty, the ethnic Chinese surnamed Xue and Chen migrated to Xiamen Island from Fu'an in the east of Fujian Province and Zhangzhou in the south of Fujian Province and settled at the southern and northern foot of the Hongjishan Mountain respectively.

The administrative organization of Xiamen City was first set up in the Song Dynasty. It was then affiliated to Tongan County, Quanzhou Prefecture. In the twentieth year during the Hongwu Period in early Ming Dynasty (1387), the imperial government started to build stockade villages and forward posts on the island and named the island "Xiamen", meaning the "Gate of the Motherland". And the geographical name of "Xiamen" became the official name of the island despite that Xiamen was once renamed "Siming Prefecture" and "Siming County" during the several hundred years from then on. In 1933, Xiamen was officially established as a city. That made it the first city set up in Fujian Province.

"Boat repair along the shore of Xiamen island"

Xiamen has a long history as a port city, and later became a center of British trade in the 19th century.

Xiamen was founded in 1394 at the beginning of the Ming dynasty as a center of defense against coastal pirates. Its prosperity was due to its deepwater sheltered harbor, that supplanted nearby Quanzhou, the port that had been the center of the maritime trade with the Indies.

In the mid-17th century, Xiamen became a stronghold of Zheng Chenggong, a Ming loyalist who held out against the Manchu and drove the Dutch from Taiwan .

"Street food"

office workers stopped by a lok lok stall (an assortment of meat/vege/seafood on bamboo stewers cooked DIY style on a common hotpot) for a quick snack.
