A beautiful coastal city on the Taiwan Strait, Xiamen is a city of 3.5 million people and is a popular university city. Its main tourist attraction is the UNESCO World Heritage site Gulangyu Island. Apart from Shanghai, this tiny island is the only other place on Chinese soil to have historically had an international settlement, and today you can see the old colonial architecture on the car-free island.
With palm tree-lined streets, a coastal breeze in the summer heat, and, like Fuzhou and Changle, low levels of pollution, Xiamen is a very popular destination for expats and Chinese alike. You’ll have no trouble meeting expats in the many bars and the vibrant cafe culture. Xiamen has some excellent beaches, and with Taiwan just a ferry ride across the Taiwan Strait, an international airport and high-speed railway lines, it’s a great please to explore China and beyond.
We currently have 2 schools in Xiamen.
