Xiamen is a true beautiful coastal city. If you have been to Xiamen, I bet you must have been to Gulangyu Islet and to Island Ring Road. And this time, I want to take you to experience the different beauty of Xiamen
Compared with the crowded famous scenic spots, Wuyuanwan Wetland Park may be not so well known. But you will definitely consider it a worthy trip.

Wuyuanwan Wetland Park, as one of Xiamen’s Wuyuanwan area development projects, covers an area of 85 hectares, equivalent to half of the area of Gulangyu Islet, and is the largest park and the largest wetland eco-park in Xiamen. So it is called the “lungs” of Xiamen. Every March, numerous egrets will make their nests and breed here, and so it is also an important post for migratory birds migrating southwards.

Wuyuan Riverside Hotel is located within the bay where swans are swimming and bulrush swaying. The most valuable thing is that the building of the hotel is not of luxurious building glittering but indifferent. Instead, it is of a Chinese architecture with south Fujian style, and brings out the best in each other with the natural landscape.
Lush trees are seen anywhere. What a resort to enjoy the abundant oxygen

Wetland maze, wooden railing, plank path, bridge, pavilion, faded lotus and green water grass, what an enchanting and delicate landscape. But it is just in the early spring, so the plants are not lush enough.
