“nice place if you're too bored”

Xiamen Botanical Garden
Ranked #3 of 273 things to do in Xiamen
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 22, 2013

This place is quite big relative to Xiamen's tourist spots, so chances are, you'll meet fewer people along the way. I think they charge 40 or 50 rmb at the entrance, but if you have time and energy, you can climb all the way up Nanputuo temple behind Xiamen university and from the top, you can walk inside the Botanical garden for free! Trust me, it's worth the hike. you'll hear the occasional shouts from overly enthusiastic Chinese people (think Dead Poets Society), but otherwise, it's a peaceful place.

This is a relatively nice park, it covers a huge area so bring your walking shoes. Also at times certain areas are closed to the public so ask at the front gate if their is something you specifically want to see. There are some nice views that are worth the climb and optional cable cars going to Heaven-Earth Temple. If you at pressed for time I would recommend spending it near the Shangri-la areas as it has the most interesting things in a smaller area.

we spent two whole days just exploring the garden. on the second day we discovered a family of kingfishers in the bushes close to the big pond.
even on a rainy day it's a nice place to stroll and observe the landscapes, birds and visitors

Very pretty and quiet. Lots of climbing so wear comfy shoes. Large cactus area. Can be reached from Xiamen university on one side. Again lots of climbing to do that.
