Introduction to Gulangyu Island
Gulangyu Islet covers an area of 1.87 square kilometers. Sunlight Rock, the highest peak on the island, is the symbol of Xiamen. Because the holes in the southwestern reefs hit by the waves will make sounds like beating the drum, it got its name Gulangyu Island, meaning "drum waves".
There are many things to do in Gulangyu Island. On the island, the tourists can find winding seaside bathing grounds with fine sands. Oddly shaped reefs showing superlative craftsmanship, which make visitors think a lot. The undulating hills, blue waves, white clouds, green trees and red tiles add beauty and radiance to each other, offering a clean, tidy and tranquil environment. Many buildings on the island showing both the Chinese and foreign architectural styles have been well preserved. Hence Gulangyu Island is known as the "Gallery of International Architectural".
