Xiamen (also known as Amoy) is a major city on the southeast (Taiwan Strait) coast of the People`s Republic of China. It is administered as a sub-provincial city of Fujian province with a population of 3.67 million. Its built up area is now bigger than the old urban island area and covers all six districts of Xiamen (Huli, Siming, Jimei, Tong`an, Haicang and recently Xiang`an). The Jinmen (Kinmen) Islands administered by the Republic of China (Taiwan) are less than 10 kilometres away. Xiamen and the surrounding southern Fujian countryside are the ancestral home to large communities of overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia. The city was a treaty port in the 19th century and one of the four original Special Economic Zones opened to foreign investment and trade when China began economic reforms in the early 1980s. It is endowed with educational and cultural institutions supported by the overseas Chinese diaspora. We visited Xiamen at the end of our China trip in 2014. Highlights included Gulangyu Island, Zhongshan Road and Nanputuo Temple.
