I visited Xiamen University as a Guest Lecturer, in November and December 2016. XMU is everything a student and faculty member could ask for in pursuit of excellence.

This university for Chinese is like Yale for us. So all Chinese tourists want to visit it. To enter the university don't forget your passport. Walk through it and a tunnel will take like 2 hours.

Opening hours are 1pm to 3pm but only very limited numbers. Opens again in late afternoon at 5pm but expect big crowds which start to gather about 3pm to wait for the opening time of 5pm.
