Xiamen is a famous scenic port city located on the southeastern coast of China. There are beautiful scenery, agreeable climate and fragrant flowers all year round. It lies at the mouth of Jinmen Bay and Jiulong River in the southeast of Fujian province, being close to Zhangzhou in the west and to Quanzhou in the north. It is separated from Taiwan Island and Penghu Isles by the Taiwan Strait. Xiamen is the second biggest city in Fujian province granted the Special Economic Zone in China. Xiamen has also been rewarded the title "the Cleanest City of China". It is also known as the hometown of overseas Chinese and Taiwanese compatriots as well as a major port.
The first that struck my mind after I left Xiamen airport was, it's a nice, easygoing & laidback place, reminds of my hometown Penang. Grandpa & I flew to Xiamen, stayed there for 2 days before adjourning to Lung Yan, my grandpa's hometown. In Xiamen, we stayed at my distant cousin's place & I was ecstatic to meet up with my uni coursemate Anna, whom I've not seen for 4 years. Before leaving for this trip, I wasn't looking forward to it.. but I changed my mind, I really enjoyed my stay at Xiamen and it left me with good memories.
