The grounds are beautiful, the staff and students are friendly and engaging. You will enjoy the architecture of some of the older buildings on campus as you walk through some of the smaller walkways.

The whole university is like a small island by itself. Inside you could find classes for all kinds of studies. Museum, bookstore are just some facilities a university one could find. Overall, the experience was good, an old charm within a city side.

Snuggled between the Five Old Man Mountains and the sea, XMU is widely regarded as China's most beautiful campus (Wuhan University perhaps being the only serious contender). Enjoy the Chinese/Western architecture dating from 1921, as well as the beautiful lotus lake and more modern architecture, and have a meal at Yifu Lou restaurant (beside Lotus Lake).
