Gulangyu Island in Xiamen is a national key cultural relics protection area and a 5A-level scenic spot. The green area of ​​Gulangyu Island covers more than 40%. What are the representative scenic spots of Gulangyu Island? Introduction to Gulangyu Island's interesting scenic spots.

One: Xiamen Underwater World (No. 2 Longtou Road, Gulangyu, Siming District, Xiamen City), people who are afraid of heat come here, cool off, see the many kinds of fish, and take free photos. It has products from all continents and oceans. There are more than 350 kinds of seawater freshwater fish with more than 10,000 tails. There are three layers in the underwater world. The various forms of animals are fully observed in all directions. It is still quite shocking when you are in the underwater tunnel.

Two: Sunlight Rock (No. 62-64, Huangyan Road, Siming District, Xiamen). The steps up to Sunlight Rock are not easy to walk, but rather steep. But after climbing, you can overlook the entire Gulangyu Island. The scenery is very good. Sunlight Rock is the highest place on Gulangyu Island. The ancient trees on the cliff are towering and obscure the sky. Fragrant ancient charm, among the damp cliffs, I feel a burst of cold shade, but there is no charm to Gulangyu, you must pay attention to sun protection.

Three: Shuzhuang Garden (No. 7 Ganghou Road, Gulangyu, Siming District, Xiamen), a very nice private garden, very beautiful, with a piano museum inside, a beautiful coastline, beautiful gardening, and weird stone walls. Very good, it is a famous scenic spot on Gulangyu Island. Looking ahead, there is an invincible sea view. Looking back, you can enjoy the panoramic view of Sunlight Rock.

Four: Haoyue Garden (No. 3 Zhangzhou Road, Gulangyu District, Siming District, Xiamen). When entering Haoyue Garden, I feel a wave of righteousness and sea breeze, which is extremely cool. The silence in the garden is in sharp contrast with the noisy streets and alleys. With awe in his heart, step by step walked to the foot of the statue of Zheng Chenggong, looking at the beautiful Taiwan in the direction of the hero waving his arm.

Five: The Catholic Church (No. 34, Lujiao Road, Gulangyu Scenic Area, Siming District, Xiamen), a small but beautiful building. There is a statue of the Son of Jesus at the door. His hands are open in a cross shape. This is a god who cannot enter The church is generally used to take wedding photos, and is a historical site on Gulangyu Island.

Six: Anxian Building (No. 18, Jishan Road, Gulangyu, Siming District, Xiamen City), a full stone building made of granite, with a total of 3 floors. The roof is flat, surrounded by a stone parapet with a height of 1 meter. The building is designed by American architects, focusing on function and structure, and the facade is concise and bright. Rough and beautiful, strong and practical, it is the only three-story block building made of stacked stones on Gulangyu Island. It not only has the characteristics of southern Fujian, but also the architectural art of American building style.

Seven: The former HSBC Bank Mansion (No. 57 Guxin Road, Siming District, Xiamen), a very temperamental building, combining Chinese and Western, was the residence of the bank president at that time. It is now converted into a coffee shop and open to the outside world. Beautiful, you can see the scenery of Gulangyu Island. The furnishings in the room are a bit old, but it brings out the feeling of aftertaste.

Eight: Gulangyu Beach (No. 15 Lujiang Road, Siming District, Xiamen). The water here is very clean, much cleaner than Baicheng Beach. There is no rubbish, and the sand is very fine. The sea breeze is very cool. There is the famous Shuzhuang Garden next to it, and you can see the entrance from the beach. Gulangyu Island is very quiet, with sea breeze blowing, listening to the piano music on the island, breathing in the slightly humid air, and you can order oyster fry in the shops on the shore, watch the sea view, eat seafood, and you can see Xiamen across the sea.
