I'm not normally a fan of visiting campuses in China, but this place really deserves a visit. There is this amazing tunnel with tons of graffiti that you must check out. I would also try the cafeteria food as well. Good stuff!

A walk through this University reminds you of old world buildings and architecture. The University is only open to the public at certain times of the day, so check before you go. Enjoy strolling the grounds and of course you are going to see lots of students!

A nice place to spend for couple of hours and good to visit it after visiting the temple next to it. Pay attention about the entry time. It is restricted to public.

I was fortunate to attend The University of Cape Town so believe I'm quite handily qualified when it comes to commenting on the aesthetics of University campuses. I tried hard but really couldn't warm to the place. It may be nice by Chinese standards but it wouldn't even register on a world stage. We visited during New Year and the... More

When visiting xiamen university there's plenty of buildings that you can take pictures of, the architecture of the buildings it's quite interesting. There's a big tunnel as well which is a must see, it's full of art made by the students.

Beautiful campus, nice and cheap food provided by the cafeteria, and great location. It also has a very good reputation and ranking among the universities in China.
