This garden was built for Tan Kah Kee's memorial. If you don't know about him, google this Chinese philanthropist. Xiamen university and Jimei university are what they are today because of Tan. Before he died, he told the then Chinese premier Zhou Enlai he would erect his own tomb on his own land, and he picked the very shores of where he sailed away from his village of Jimei in the late 1890s to Singapore where he made his fortune. Those who value the story of overseas Chinese descendants would appreciate this place. And if you see the posters of Tan around the entire Jimei, it's because he loves books and knowledge, so the posters are all proverbs and quotes of values. All in all, it's a good place to walk on a bright morning.
