... through the harbour with floating homes and two giant floating Restaurants. Now we are driving up the highest mountain Victoria Peak to get a fabulous view of the city from up above and return down by the Peak Tramway. The bus meets us at the foot of the hill and we go back to the ship. iIn the evening an open top bus give us a different view of this very busy and vibrant city.

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 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.
