Xiamen in China

(2005.8.12-16)

We went to Xiamen . It locates the southern part of China. Taiwan and Hong Kong are close.

Our first purpose was to visit old houses like these photos.

 It takes about 2-3 hours from Xiamen city by car.

 

There are two kinds of shape house . One is circle and the other is square.

 

 

Whenever we go abroad we enjoy local foods. The taste was great and the prices were so cheap!

If you have a dinner not in the gorgeous restaurant it maybe costs you less than $3.

 

One plate is $1~2

 

 

 

 

  

Massage is also cheap !!  about $6-8/a hour

 

I love this beauty salon near the hotel(The crown plaza hotel). I had my hair shampoo and set

but it cost me only $2 ! And all staff were very cheerful !!

 

Night scenery of Xiamen is also beautiful. I took these photos from Colons island.

 

We love China! China has many faces so we should check another city too!!
