... some bus 20 minutes out of town to buy a ticket. With limited time anyway, this was pretty stressful! I think it's a recent development because it didn't say anything about that in my Lonely Planet guide. It also didn't say that a return ticket cost 50Yuan (for a 15 minute ferry ride.. pretty expensive!)

We took a 30 minute taxi ride out to the Jimei Educational Village, a suburb of Xiamen with a lovely university campus and more colonial buildings.
Came back to the harbour area of Xiamen and wandered down Zhonghsan Lu Walking Street and then took a detour through little market areas. Met a lovely Chinese girl and her brother at the Church, where a Chinese Christian wedding ceremony was just about to begin.
