This Botanical Garden has extensive grounds and some large water ponds. Yet it lacks depth and the orchid section for one is very disappointing . Altogether a lot of work is needed to bring it to current international standards

Very touristic. Beautiful garden but no good food. In general the only food to be found there is Chinese food. Nothing wrong with that but it is quite tasteless. I prefer the Chechuan taste which is spicier. The prices are, as can be expected for a touristic place, a little overdone.

Xiamen gardens takes up a large part of the land area on the island, and is easily accessible from all of the major hotels. There are three main gates (West, East and North) and the western gate is the most accessible and is in the more touristy area of Xiamen. The park is divided into different climactic zones, each with... More

Yeah, what's so great about a museum dedicated to pianos? Dusty and rusty old keyboards cluttering up a room, isn't it? No. Extremely well preserved examples of the piano and its offshoots (harpsichord) all well appointed in a delightful mansion house. Stories of musical greats who might have composed on similar instruments abound through this surprisingly entertaining and educational stop... More

Most tourists don't go there and miss one of the top four botanical gardens in China. You must be willing to hike because this place is huge. Shuttles between gardens are available at moderate cost. Gardens are wonderful. We only had time for a couple of them and were so impressed.

We combined the huge and hilly botanical gardens (40RMB) with the old Railway track, Wulao mountain and Nanputuo temple for a day roundtrip hike. We left the gardens through Wulao mountain summit (so much rubbish! - and crowdy) & Nanputuo temple. As far as I could see, all entrances have ticket booths - no free entrance through the temple anymore,... More

Most recomemded if you are a fan of nature areas. The gardens are huge and you can walk there for hours. Very beatiful place. Just check for the weather before you go there cause it can get very humid between the trees.
