One of the most magnificent places in China - definitely the nicest coastal area
Dec 2019
It is worth spending in the area a few days as there is so much to see and do. The distances are not large, but the roads are winding and there are some places where you can stop and trek, not to mention that it is definitely worthwhile visiting the various viewpoints in the morning as well as in the afternoon. The villages are welcoming and there are few foreign tourists. I would recommend to stay in Xiapu and use it as a base for day trips. Seaweeds, oysters, sea cucumbers are all raised here and exported all over the world. Not only the scenery but also the people are very interesting. Amazing territory.

A Photographers dream come true
Oct 2019
We stayed four nights in Xiapu and loved every moment of it. So many wonderful places to photograph. They said it was small but by our standards it was a big city! Would love to go back.

Two days of fantastic photography and food
Dec 2019 • Solo
Wasn’t sure what to expect. Was drawn to the region as a photographer after seeing some of the shots published in recent years and digging into where they were from. The main city of Xiapu is much larger than a “small village” and full of good food.

As I was drawn by the prospect of photography, I looked into tours and found the number that were available via English searches were tiny. Luckily, read the previous reviews here about Lin and reached out to him. He was half the price per day of the other primary tour company and provided a high quality and diligent level of service. The entire photo establishment in the region is quite heavily institutionalized. There are viewing platforms, entry fees, and a mish mash of authentic / organic sights and more artificial ones. Many also have models who, for a fee will walk in the scene, pilot a boat out for the photos, etc.

In theory you could self drive or take regional buses but knowing the tide, when and where to be for sunset or sunrise, etc and being able to cover the fairly large region where everything sits makes having a driver and guide well worth it.

I reached out to Lin via WeChat and he got back to me within an hour: ​+86 153 5970 0706 i was solo, but he can also apparently hands groups up to 8 or so folks.

Great place for taking pictures and enjoy seafood.
Sep 2019
With its very curvy shoreline, Xiapu provides abundant photography opportunities. To support tourism the local government has built many observation decks, bridges and buildings. The kelp pole in mudflat is a quite unique scene as well as the fishing "farm" and houses. I was there for sight seeing and photo taking for three days. Had great time. Also impressed by the local seafood and tourist services.

A photographer's dream
Mar 2019 • Couples
We took a high speed train from Fuzhou to spend one day in Xiapu County. We hired Lin, the photographer's guide. One tip: do remember to bring your passport to buy your train ticket. We had no idea what to expect in Xiapu... but it was worth taking a day trip to explore.
You can WeChat with Lin to arrange. +86 153 5970 0706. WeChat automatically translates to English so it was easy for us to communicate. Plus there is always Google Translate. Lin is very reliable. He met us at the train station and joined us for a seafood lunch.

Stunning
May 2019 • Solo
Xiapu is intoxicatingly beautiful everywhere you look. Colourful low-lying sand, tiger-stripped beaches, seaweed drying on bamboo poles, fishing villages, vertical nets fluttering in the breeze, laver and oyster farms, vibrant sand beds, tiny drifting boats, flying egrets, rich maple forests, clusters of giant banyan trees, and sunrise and sunsets in an opulent palette of colours.

It is worth getting up at 4am to catch the sunrise. The views are incredible.

Nice View if weather is good
Apr 2019 • Family
The place seems like famous photography place and you can see the "kelong" of Xiapu. I went with a tour, the place seems not very accessible if you do not have the transport. It has nice view for photo. If the weather is good, we can see beautiful sunset and special view. Unfortunately, the day we went it rained.

How to get to the Seaweed farming port
Jan 2019 • Couples
This is a very interesting tour of the seaweed farm.
Take a train from Fuzhou South to Xiapu station. When you get off the train take a taxi (15-30 minutes drive, cost about 30 Yuan) to coordinates 26.881338, 120.058486 . Once the taxi driver see that you are a tourist he will know where to take you... , There is a guy there that has a boat and can take you to see the seaweed farm, however, he may be on a tour and you will need to wait for him to come back. There are people on the beach fixing fishing nets that can help you with information (use google/Microsoft translate...). Once done the boat owner ordered us a taxi to go back to the train station. The boat tour is about 1 hour.
