Thanks for your reply. What's the best way to get to these interesting places? Is the public transport efficient? Are there small vans that cater for a family of 5?

Jimei Scenic Sightseeing Area

by cheekychic

Jimei is Tan Kah Kee's hometown and a college town. Mr.Tan, a patriotic overseas Chinese, set up 12 schools of different levels from kindergarten to colleges and combined into Jimei University. Jimei is also a prime tourist site with distinctive strong local culture. The buildings along the Dragon-boat Lake are especially charming with the wall half-hidden in the green trees and the roofs glittering under the sun, all of which are reflected in the lake presenting a fantastic view.
Aoyuan ( Turtle Park), one of the highlights, lies in the southeastern corner of Jimei, stretching out to the sea. The park has a marvelous display of 653 carvings, depicting various historical scenes, personage stories from ancient to modern China, and the inscriptions. The carvings are so fine and exquisite that visitors marvel at the craftsmen's skill and feat.

"Xiamen"

Xiamen, a Special Economic Zone in Fujian province, is arguably one of the most active and exciting cities in China. Situated in the southeast of the country, this remarkable pollution free city has many historical landmarks to impress any visitors. Among the many interesting spots are Gulang island (Gulangyu), a restful island with golden beaches; Nanputuo Temple, a thousand-year-old Tang Dynasty temple packed with Buddhist statuary and Gulanyu Museum, the most visible building on the island located on a hilltop. The Overseas Chinese Museum, Wan Shi Rocks, Huli Shan Fortress and Zheng Chenggong Memorial Hall are other attractive landmarks.

Although Cantonese cuisine is served in most restaurants, the popular Chaozhou version features such specialties as extra-strong Iron Buddha tea, and Xiamen's seafood and tofu soup are delightful.

Its only indigenous craft is lacquered thread sculpture for ceramics. However, the marketplace specialties such as whimsical clay teapots shaped like Buddha, silk dolls, bead embroidery and beautiful jade offered by Zhongshan Lu, are widely available.
