TripAdvisor Reviews United Hotel Xiamen

... know is one of the more famous ones. It was great because it was so early in the morning that I had the place to myself and it still felt very real, rather than geared up for tourists - all kinds of farm animals wondering around the paths, the residents here sitting outside chatting or playing cards, and inside the tulous (you could wander in but not go upstairs) people were busy having breakfast, washing clothes, cleaning or sorting out the animals. So nice, peaceful ...
... number of pianos on it. There is an amazing piano museum, which I am sure Nick's father would love. I wasn't allowed to take photos, but it was a fantastic collection. There was even a corner piano. I imagine you would have to cross your hands over to play it. Continuing the musical theme, a chinaman living in Australia is determined to create the largest organ museum in the world. Again, the collection was amazing. The only thing lacking in both these museums, ironically, was music. ...
... wander around by ourselves, we decided to split up and go our own ways shopping, again, so many shops. so many people!! We bought only a few items here, had no lunch here but when we met up, we had a sundae from McDonalds !! .
Time was up, head count done once again, our group all here, unlike some groups that were missing people!! Back through customs, back through check in and yes, straight to the bar!! After a full on day, we needed it!
Had a lazy day today staying around the Hotel Indigo. We walked down Zhongshan Lu and had lunch at Aijsen Ramen, one of our favourite Japanese restaurant chains. We then wandered back to the hotel and had afternoon tea sitting up in the restaurant area overlooking the harbour and Gulangyu Island, unfortunately not warm or nice enough to sit outside.
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.
