“A visit that will bring back yr university's memories”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

A nice stroll inside the entire campus, making me feel young once again. Brought back memories of university's day back then. Environment is calming and cohesive.. felt warmth and comfortable.

“A lovely campus to walk”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

One if the nicest places in Xiamen to simply stroll around and relax. Occasionally it is busy, especially around the lake area, but it has never been "too busy" in my experience.

“Return to it after 14 years”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

I spent 14 years in this University back in 1990s. When I returned it this May, I was almost shocked by its huge change. New buildings, new layout, disappearance of many structures, and even new design of compound. There is even the entrance control to avoid crowds of tourists who will easily bring extra noise and chaos to the students. But my dormitory building, Furong Two, was still there. It was an emotional experience. Even with so many changes, I still believe that Xiamen University gave me the best memory a university can give to a young man.
Go to the Shangxian Football Court, you will see the young faces doing many kinds of sports there. With the big hall and tropical trees surrounding the court, you can just sit on the steps and watch the sunset and students playing.

“Pretty”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Very nice campus, but still a campus. There are tonnes of visitors and recently an entrance fee for non-students. Cheap eats near the student dorms.

“Worth a drive around”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This has a real european ambiance despite hustle and buistle of chinese life. Interseting to drive around view facilities and spend
time at the lake. Almost the size of a suburb
