Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Xiamen University is one of the best universities in China, and its campus is known as the most beautiful in China. The ancient and aesthetic Jiageng architecture, the majestic Jiannan Auditorium, the beautiful Furong Lake, you can often see black swans. All the plants, trees and architecture are very nice and you can enjoy sitting by the lake. You can also see many kinds of wonderful student graffiti in the Furong Tunnel. However, the most important thing is that you have to make a reservation on your phone a few days in advance, otherwise you won't get in.

    The fort is worth making a trip to either for the spectacular ocean views, the history and/or the giant cannon. Plan to spend about an hour or two here and make sure you check out everything as there are is good signs and posters but some of the interesting facts are a little hidden. You can get very close to the large cannon and even check out the ammunition that it use to blast off into the sea.

    Price to enter for adults is 25 yuan and they have a show at 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.

    The bathrooms are clean and are a great place to change before heading down to the nearby Baicheng Beach!

    Definitely the longest stairs I had walked to reach the top. People were saying that it is around 800 steps. Honestly, my legs were trembling before I reached the top. Needs to rest in between stairs to catch my breath. ha ha ha. . . Anyways, the effort was well worth it. Along the stairs was decorated with famous statues and dragons. Scenic view while going to as well as reaching the top. Big statue in honor of Wu Ben (medical saint) on top. Here you can light an incense and say your prayer. Take some photos as evidence that you really had reached the top. Fantastic view from there. Going down was less effort. Definitely bring some water with you and be prepared for the long journey on the stairs to reach the top. There were small shops selling food, drinks and souvenirs downhill. Definitely a must when in Xiamen. Climb while you can.

    You may find it be difficult to visit this area if you can't read Chinese. There are many historical values to see but I think it is cater for the Chinese as there's no English to explain it.

    Interesting person. The man was a businessman and did very well then he started Jinmei University which is now one of the best school in Xiamen. A person who really lived his people.

    The place was just okay nothing special, the view from the grounds was nice. A nice place to take a walk.
