China - Fujian (Chapter)
This is the Fújiàn chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.
The ancestral home to many overseas Chinese, Fújiàn on China’s southern coast has a strong seafaring disposition and it used to be one of the windows that connected China to the outside world. Once a great emporium in Asia, its multicultural heritage still stands beautifully in Xiàmén and Quánzhōu, where you can glimpse the region’s glorious maritime past.
- amble down the alleys in breezy Xiàmén, one of China’s most attractive cities
- dream of grand times long gone in Gǔlàng Yǔ, an island packed with colourful colonial villas
- explore the region’s World Heritage–listed, Fújiàn Tǔlóu, massive, semi-enclosed earthen edifices that are the ancient equivalents of modern-day condos
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Xiàmén, Gǔlàng Yǔ, Fújiàn Tǔlóu, Quánzhōu & around, Fúzhōu, and Wǔyí Shān.
