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.

Wasn't sure what to expect, but we spent a pleasant couple of hours here, walking up from the bottom, through various gardens, seeing different temples. It's a steep climb if you go right to the top, but a great view, even though it was quite overcast when we were there. Busy in the popular areas, but quiet once you get... More

I really enjoyed the Xiamen Botanical Garden. It was nice for a long walk, with plants and nice views. It didn't really seem to have as many plants as I would expect for a Botanical Garden, though. It seemed more like a normal park with walking paths, but it was really nice, nevertheless. I especially enjoyed laying on the grass... More

It is not a popular place if you visit Xiamen for the first time. However, do come here if you get one more day to stay at Xiamen. It is quite a big park for you to walk and enjoy the nature. Lots of trees and flowers. You can walk to hike to the top of the small hill inside... More

We tend to think of botanical gardens as manicured parks, with large steamy greenhouses, elaborate rockeries and shrubberies and omnipresent "keep off the grass" signs. Not this one! Located almost downtown Xiamen, it extends over almost 5 square kilometers. Yes, there are collections of bamboos, cacti, palm trees and medicinal herbs; there are flower exhibits, lakes, ponds and babbling brooks... More

We took a great walk from the RailWay Garden near the Botanical Garden towards the Railway Station. Nice pathway with music along the way. Very considerate with modern n clean toilets ( with LCD indicator of the durations of occupied)
