“worth while”

Jimei Turtle Garden
Reviewed 24 July 2012

This place was another good diversion from the city. This place is in part an acknowledgement of the past valuable contributions made by Mr Tan Kah Kee to the Xiamen and Chinese people.

You need to walk about a kilometre from the bus stop, along the sea front on the right, the various buildings (connected with education) on the left to reach the 'garden', which was more like an open park with pavillions, portico, liberation monument, and the Tan mausoleum. There were more concrete and buildings than trees and flowers and vegetations in this place than the word 'garden' would conjure.

But it was a very pleasant escapade. You could see the sea all around, and the massive bridges that connect the various islands to Xiamen. It was quiet, and not crowded. The air was fresh and a lovely breeze. Pleasant to walk around.
