No cars. Lots of walking and photo opportunities. Lots of things to see. If you're a non Chinese tourist, make sure you get the correct boat back. Some are for nationals only! The last one leaves at 6pm if you're planning on not staying overnight

Buy your ticket directly at the pier. Don’t believe the hotels / travel agencies/ taxis even who tell you that these will be sold out! They are trying to sell you your packages, which (if you’re used to independent travelling and hate tourist traps) you’ll...More

Fantastic day. Ferry with great views of the harbour. Lots of great architecture and some really brilliant old colonial buildings. Excellent walk around the island. Gardens and piano museum pretty good too. Climb sunrise rock for panoramic view

A visit is a must and once you move away from the ferry port, which is very touristy, the island is a great place to explore at leisure. There is a lot of history and architecture to see, and little places to grab a coffee,...More

Love xiamen. It's a great place and kinda garden city. When you go down on the streets, you can see the hospital people from China. Gulangyu is the most famous attraction there. Even though it's a small island, it's of great attraction. Beautifully old-fashioned and...More

Gulangyu island is arguably the No.1 touring attraction for the whole Xiamen, which is generally a charming and beautiful city. There are regular ferries to cross the channel and get to the island. There are at least a handful of famous gardens, museums, memorial, parks...More

I only can suggest to go early as possible to get the tickets at the counter. I never tried to make an reservation in advanced, but I guess it’s possible by CTRIP but it might be only in chinese language available.
