A very good place to shelter from the hustle and bustle of the city. The trees provide a cool feeling against the autumn heat. Quite perplexed that a lot of the plants on display are cacti, I expected more Chinese native plants.

If you like walking in the park, this is just the perfect place. There are many different kinds of attraction, rain forest park, desert park with a lot of collection of cactus plants, and a big flower garden. The lake view is also beautiful and relaxing. A good place to have a picnic.

We went there on a Saturday. There were many visitors but no where near as many compared to Gulangyu or Hakka Tulou, which was a very pleasant surprise considering that the garden is rated AAAA scenic spot. The garden is divided into sections and there is even a succulent plant section with cactuses. I wish they had maintained the place... More

On the way to this garden, I was preparing myself for tour groups and big crowds of people. But I was very happy to discover the opposite! For a beautiful place located in the heart of Xiamen, I saw few people and for nearly two hours I saw no one at all. I took Bus 943 (2 yuan) to 上季... More

spent half a day here wandering around, up and down the mountains and still didn't see it all. You could easily use up a whole day if you want to see everything and give more than a cursory look at things. Be aware that you will have to hike a little bit and sometimes the "trails" are no more than... More

The Xiamen Botanical Garden is great to wander around and find some quiet spots to relax! There are two entrance, one near the Xiamen Railway Park and one on top of Nanputuo Temple! What I can really recommend is to get to the top of the park and enjoy the beautiful view over the city

When visiting Xiamen, most people directly go for Gulangyu island but in my opinion you haven't been to Xiamen if you haven't visited this wonderful botanical garden. It's quite a large garden and you can easly stroll there for a couple of hours. And if you've had enough of the crowds, maybe you just should that. Despite its size it... More

The 10,000 Rock Botanical Garden (Wànshí Zhìwùyuán 万石植物园) is one of Xiamen's top 5 sites, with beautifully landscaped trails winding amongst 20+ nurseries and over 5,300 kinds of tropical and subtropical plants, many found nowhere else on earth. The first of its kind in China, the 2.27 km2 park opened in 1960 right in downtown Xiàmén, Koxinga stationed troops in... More
