Amoy for the English
Port and industrial centre of remarkable importance, this Chinese city is in effect an island connected to the mainland by a 5 kilometre bridge and it offers many opportunities for discovering the culture of this immense and densely populated state. Its climate is mild in winter, and, being subject to Monsoons, its summers are humid and warm, with the characteristic rainy season.
You will be able to appreciate the many facets of Xiamen, a destination that is still relatively unexplored by mass tourism and this makes it even more interesting and less contaminated by globalisation. You cannot miss the island of Gulangyu, once a western district, today reachable only by boat and totally pedestrianised. Strolling through its streets, you will be able to catch sight of its characteristic buildings and it won't be hard to find a souvenir to take home with you.
In the district of Siming, instead, stands the only bastion of the Buddhist religion: the Nanputuo Temple. And then the University of Zhongshan, and Zhongshan Road, the street for shopping, the relaxing Yundang Lake and the Botanical Garden. China is synonymous with cooking: Xiamen offers the best of this thousand year culinary art. You must obviously taste the tea in one of the numerous tea rooms. Being a city on the sea, fish is one of the main protagonists of the more traditional dishes, with seafood noodles and soups, and not forgetting sweet and sour chicken, a real must in Chinese cooking.
