I've seen a few universities that are said to be among the most beautiful in China, but this one is top. The lake, the park, well-maintained old buildings and good modern architecture, and the mountain backdrop make this place stunning. The security at the gates is a bit of a drag, but they make sure that the campus doesn't get crowded. The book shop turned out to be worth visiting too, if you can read Chinese.

Interesting to see a Chinese University but nothing of great interest otherwise. Good book store with reasonable prices. Coffee shop OK but prices above what students expect!

Lovely campus built around two artificial lakes with lots of birds and wonderful landscaping. Very relaxing place to walk around and just enjoy being alive.

The university of Xiamen or Xia'da is set in wonderful surroundings. The mountains act as a backdrop with a wonderful lake area and further along the university has its own beach.

Xiamen University is nice and picturesque. They have old buildings which are really nice Please bring an umbrella though (per person) it could be very hot sometimes and the university is sprawling, so a lot of walking is required. They say you could rent a bike inside the university, that would be fun but we were not able to find this place though.
