Way Attractions: Xiamen University

Originally we planned to go out at eight o'clock, but we did not get up till the hour hand had pointed to nine. Both of us were overslept. So we just quickly packed up and had our breakfast before starting out. Now we just arrived at the Guangdong-Fujian toll station and along the road further we would left Guangdong Province and entered Fujian Province.

It was the midday when we arrived in Xiamen, and the first stop was the restaurant recommended by Mr. Zhang Xinmin, a gourmet of Chaozhou and Santou foods. All the dishes we ordered tasted good, and only took us 150 yuan for four people, two adults and two kids, really cheap. The kids were very satisfied with the rice fried with seaweed and my favorite one was this little cucumber fried with meat and garlic. I did not  know how many little cucumbers I have ate.

I have been to many temples and in my opinion, in such a times that even the temples prepare themselves for listing in stock exchange, South Putuo Temple is a true temple for genuine practice, requiring no tickets, no gifts or money in other ways but declining candles and incenses.

Xiamen University is really beautiful. There were many tourists and the students were not so many as it is in the summer holiday now

Dormitory of Xiamen University. Living here is much better than living in high-rising building, isn’t it?

Science and Arts Center. Science and arts, what a contradictory combination

The buildings in Xiamen University are of unique style, not like those of other universities just resembling cuboid

This is the  dream water world in Guanyin Mountain. It was super crowded. As we did not bring with us the bathing suits and would have to avoid many items, we finally just passed it.

This is the sand sculpture park. What a pity that we were not allowed to get in

When we arrived at the beach, some people were erecting their tents for camping there

The site for camping is only one corner of the beach. Here is the main playground. The seaside in summer, especially the beach, is always crowded with people anywhere. It is a pity that we could not play water. And the sands are not soft enough. So we just sat on the beach to catch the ocean breeze.
