Gulangyu Island, Xiamen China 2011 (鼓浪屿)
I would like to continue sharing the pictures taken during my trip to Xiamen China recently. There are not many places to visit in Xiamen, when i asked the local people where to visit, they told me only Gulangyu Island..The only transport to this island is by ferry, about 5 minutes from Xiamen city center.Gulangyu Island is renowned for its beaches and winding lanes and its varied architecture.
We engaged this lady as our tour guide. She just approached us at the ferry counter and she requested a very minimum fee..There are many peoples similar like her to earn little money as tour guide..
Let me share with you the Colonial architecture on Gulangyu island..
Gulangyu island is a car free island, this is the only transport to carry goods..
This is the beach, don't think one can enjoy at this beach in view of so many tourists..
I tried this local famous snack 金包银 , a steamed bun with full of mushrooms filling, quite good!
