Our city——Xiamen

It is situated on the southeast coast of Fujian (map)Province at the mouth of the Jiulong River directly across from Taiwan. Greater Xiamen consists of the Island of Xiamen, Gulangyu Islet, several small islets and a portion of the mainland. Xiamen maintains the reputation as China(map)’s cleanest city. There are many scenic spots in and around Xiamen, and it is one of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations. Xiamen is the ancestral home of many overseas Chinese, who have in turn contributed to the prosperity of the Island.
