Then you need to find Wucun bus station, which is about 520m away from the station exit. Take bus 952, 116 or 127 and get off at Ferry Post Office (Lundu YouJu) stop, walk for about 140m to reach the port, where you can find the ferry to Sanqiutian Port in Gulangyu. But the taxi only take 20 minutes at about CNY20 per car, you can take this into consideration.

It is not necessary to take a bus, the metro station is only 900m away from Xiamen Station. It is about 15min walking. Surely, if you want to take a bus, you can use bus 133, 129, 103 for one stop.

You need to go to Xiamen Station or the North Station to take a rail to Quanzhou. More rides go from the North Station. From the airport, you can take airport shuttle bus which runs around every 20min and take around 40min on the way.
