I went there in the morning. Not too many people, the place was big and quiet! But as a botanical garden, I expect to see more species!

Very nice botanical garden that includes monuments, sculptures, etc. honoring various provinces of China and their architectural heritage. Unfortunately, these sites are not peopled so there is no sense of how the flora and buildings related to their populations.

The Botanical gardens are a worthwhile place to visit when in Xiamen and not peessed for time. There is a variety of sights but it is not always straightforward to navigate if you don't speak or read chinese. The English signs are sparse.

Beautiful gardens and hiking trails. It is a quiet and peaceful place in the middle of a big city. The cactus and succulent area is amazing: Thousands of species, beautifully presented, exotic and unusual. Entrance fee is very reasonable. You can purchase a bus ticket...More

Xiamen is not a big city. A taxi will do at less than 100 RMB. There's a railroad park right next to the Botanical Garden's main gate, and it's worth going. You may plan to visit it after you come out of the botanical... More
