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).

When you visit Xiamen University, you will not only see a landmark, but also a way of life for university students studying in this prestigious university. The campus is rather spacious. And you will see university students walking past.

It's a popular attraction because it's free to visit, so it's very crowded. Unfortunately, the visitors take no care for others and drop their trash everywhere; seriously it looked like a rubbish tip, with ice cream wrappers, soda bottles,... More
