Spacious designer campus, with park, lakes and a variety of architectural styles. There is also a restaurant.

It was very hot so the queue wasn't nice but the architecture and the young people made up for it. I was surprised at the vastness of the campus grounds and how clean and well they were maintained.

If in the city of Xiamen, you might enjoy spending a few hours on the quaint campus of Xiamen University. Nestled in the bustling downtown area of Xiamen, the university campus is a pleasant respite from the surrounding area of shopping and business.
There is an artificial lake with well-kept vegetation that is located on the campus. There are several places to eat in the surrounding area, including a number of Western-food establishments. The campus has an on-site hotel for guests, but you can probably do better in the downtown area and it is more convenient to stay at a hotel near the Gulangyu Island crossing area. But for a few hours of retreat from the hustle and bustle of Xiamen, you could do far worse than the Xiamen University campus.

If you don't look like Chinese by any chances, bring your student or ID card just in undesirable case you have to be security checked. It's not so something out of ordinary but totally worth a visit when you are in Xiamen. It represents Chinese architecture shown in the patterns and the structure of the buildings. More or less than 1 hour is sufficient for a nice ramble with your friends.Also photo with black ducks background, maybe. Camera is recommended!

Don't go during the holidays - there is a queue to get through the gate just to take a look. The grounds are like a botanical garden with labelled trees, lakes with swans and acres of parkland and some of the old and modern architecture is worth seeing.
