Regional Info:
Xiamen is considered a second-tier city in China. It is a coastal city - complete with beaches and palm trees! With a population of around 2 million, it is a relatively small city by Chinese and Asian standards. It has a nice cosmopolitan feel but without the traffic and terrible pollution found in the mega cities of China and Xiamen is often listed as one of the cleanest and one of the most liveable cities in China. Xiamen is located just a few degrees north of the Tropic of Cancer on the south-east coast of China, across from Taiwan. Xiamen has a temperate climate. Summers are hot and humid, with temperatures typically running about 95F/35C in the daytime. Winters are relatively mild, with the average temperature about 60F/16C. During the school year, the first two months are hot and humid; the next two and half months are very pleasant. In January and February it gets quite cold with inland air bringing dry, windy conditions. March through May is usually pleasant again. Xiamen has a long history of blending Asian and Western cultures. It was one of the first cities in China to host permanent Western Expat settlements in the 1800s. Some neighbourhoods in the city reflect this European colonial influence. The city is served by an international airport for those wishing to take breaks overseas or within China but for those seeking entertainment within Xiamen there is plenty to see and do - it's actually a popular tourist destination for Chinese nationals and it's a great location for families as well.
