Sightseeing near Hulishan Cannon Fort

- Nanputuo Temple


Not far from Hulishan Fort is this striking, high profile temple which hails right back to the Tang Dynasty, making it over 1,000 years old. It has of course seen extensive renovations and add-ons over the years, including that of a new pavilion, but its ancient bronze bells and Buddhist scriptures are the highlights. There’s also a large lotus pond and a vegetarian restaurant but it gets very busy, so arrive early.


- Wanshi Botanical Garden


The garden was first built in 1960 and has many kinds of plants like palms, bamboo, orchids and bonsai. Visitors will also find gardens and display rooms. Some of the Garden's most scenic spots are the Morning Bell of Heaven, the Reading and Music Playing Cave, the Cloud Locking Stones, the Jade Scepter Rock and the Peace Stone.


Transportation near Hulishan Cannon Fort

You can walk the town and beaches as Xiamen is quite compact, though getting about by bicycle is the best way to explore the island around the ring road. Taxis are also pretty good value and there is the Bus Rapid Transit for out of town travel, with local buses covering the city. Hire a motorbike if you dare as although it is an excellent way to get around, they are actually banned. If you do, stay away from the main areas like the lake or Zhongshan Road.
