China is always showing us something new and Xiamen is the most recent discovery we’ve made. Its an ultra modern, scenic and fascinating city that we just recently enjoyed. Here’s what you can expect and why its a great call for your itinerary.
First off Xiamen has really good connections to big hubs like Hong Kong and Shenzhen. You can arrive in a fast train from either city in almost no time.
The city’s modern growth and look is only moving upward. We stayed in the lovely Conrad Hotel tower. There are many new luxury chains of hotels in the pipeline which promise great urban luxury escapes.
The city is built around golden sandy beaches, coastal panoramas, it has a lot of history and throughout all this there are a lot of places to run, walk and exercise.
Xiamen might not be a household name like Beijing or Hong Kong, but we think it is stunning and one of the best cities we’ve seen in China (and we’ve been to most).
Xiamen has the feel of Sanya, the tropical island paradise built around a clean and beautiful environment. It has a promising modern and growing characteristic that will bring us back for sure.
