It has been one of the most beautiful days I spent in Putian, China. I've been there with my girlfriend and her close relatives, and we spent there a full day among temples, caves, gardens and statues, all very well preserved. But also we relaxed on the beach and enjoyed watching fishermen come back on the land bringing various seafood.... More

If you're staying in Putian, this is definitely worth doing. If you don't speak Chinese, then do this with a translator or guide.

Mazu temple is one of the place you have to go when you're traveling in Fujian Putian. Mazu is a very important and historic figure in Putian's people's heart.

The Mazu Temple here is incredible. The people are very friendly and there are couple of nice beaches. Otherwise, there is very little on Meizhou. I absolutely recommend it for the temple, but that's it.

A very pleasant island. The have one of the best seafood restaurants in Putian, unfortunately not very cheap: a decent meal for two will cost about RMP650 for 1 plate of escargot, 1 plate of fish and 1 plate of prawns. The scenery os beautiful and the temple of the goddess of the sea is all worth a visit even... More

There are a few hotels dotted around and there is a beach, obviously being an island. Though the beach has no part to play in any tourist attraction. This may be due to the time of year, despite it still being sweltering hot! Or perhaps the day we went may not have been a weekend even though there were still... More

The island itself is pleasant enough for a half-day visit, with the main attraction being the tempke at the top dedicated to the goddess of the sea. However, you would be best avoiding the cheapest ferries, instead opting for the faster (and slightly more expensive) smaller motor boats, which are not only faster and safer, but the Conditions on board...

It's a shame that the no. 1 tourist spot in Putian is not well-managed. The ferry ride is not pleasant if you're caught in the crowded larger boat with lots of pushy and loud riders, definitely a shock to visitors. If you're able to make it to the beach and the shores with amazing naturally formed rocks, then somehow, it's... More

Visited Meizhou on 23rd Sep 2013. I was also there last year and I had a big surprised on how much the area surrounding the ferry terminal have changed in just 1 short year. Five foot way were constructed outside the shops and restaurants, the roads were re-paved and building given fresh coat of paint. The island itself has transformed... More
