"Jinjiang Inn, Jimei University Villlage (Xuecun)"
Rented bicycle from hotel for ride to Jiageng Memorial Park and Museum and surrounding seafront area.
A 10 min walk to the commercial and financial area along Jiyuan Lu which is clean and orderly. Located here is the Long Distance Bus Terminal which is next to Vanda Shopping Complex.Took an express bus to Xian Yu, a mini bus to Pan Tou and a motorcycle ride to Xin ZhengCun.
At main Local Bus Stand, took one of the numerous buses to Xiamen City. Most efficient way to tour and discover Xiamen. Be prepared with the bus fare which is mostly 2 Yuan/Renmenbi.
From here took a bus to the ferry terminal to Gulang Yu, a beautiful island and popular tourist attraction. A round trip ferry ride is only 8 Yuan which includes a running commentary in Chinese. Be prepared to walk to the numerous places of interest, mostly garden parks and a museum dedicated to Zheng Chengong. There are some quaint and well designed hotels catering to honeymooners.
A memorable meal at Hu Li District. Had a juicy T-bone complete with bulls-eye topped pasta to help wipe the delicious black pepper sauce. Also must try, cheesy sausages on chicken leg bone. Drinks, pastries, salads, fruits come free.
Had Earl Grey at Westin Hotel and read latest English language newspaper. Impressive service and ambience for someone wearing a T-shirt, jeans and dirty sneakers.
No problems, the staff are semi-english speaking but I had enough mandarin to get by - food is good but pricey for Chinese standards.
No room service and some confusion over reception & operator function - In short fine for stay if you have some experience of China prior but you may struggle as a newcomer to get what you want
"Hotel staff not know how to check expedia itinerar"
When we arrived to hotel , it was around 11:00pm.
And we were very tired and we wanted to finish check in and went to our room a.s.a.p.Unfortunately, the hotel staff did not find our reservation.I showed them several times our Expedia itinerary number.But they couldnot find and they didnot understand English very well.
It seems they are not so familiar Expedia.Our check in took around 1 hour.Finally they arranged one room for us.
But during our 3 days stay, every morning hotel staff asked our Expedia itinerary number.It is unbelievable.
