Xiamen University is an "Amoy" university with a wide range of expertise. The economics department is one of the original ones. Some very lovely garden spaces, very clean and quiet campus. Impressive investment in infrastructure - large buildings in great shape.

Opening hours are 1pm to 3pm but only very limited numbers. Opens again in late afternoon at 5pm but expect big crowds which start to gather about 3pm to wait for the opening time of 5pm.
