It is not the most famous tourist destination in Xiamen, but in fact the very best! Much more interesting and beautiful then Gulangyu island. The park is huge and located on the slope of some mountains. No mass tourism! The cactus park is very special...More

If you visit Nanputuo Temple or Xiada Campus, you definitely should plan the next few hours for visiting the Botanical Garden.

The gardens are wonderful to walk around, there are multiple paths but I took a short hike between the temple and the cactus garden up to a giant rock to get a view of the city. Definitely worth it and makes for an enjoyable afternoon.

Its a big area where you can spend most of your day just walking around and enjoy pleasant and nice environment. There are a few entrances, you can also climb from the Nanputuo tample.

Xiamen is not a big city. A taxi will do at less than 100 RMB. There's a railroad park right next to the Botanical Garden's main gate, and it's worth going. You may plan to visit it after you come out of the botanical... More
