The main harbor districts of the port are mainly seated in the estuary port.

There is a passenger transportation service supplied in the Mawei Harbor District. On weekdays and Sundays, there is a shuttle liner daily between Mawei and Matsu (in the northwest of the Taiwan Strait). During the Spring Festival, there may be three liners daily.

From the airport to the hotel, you can first take the airport bus to the south railway station. Then take a bullet train to Xiamen railway station. The hotel is near the railway station, about 900 meters.

Then you are advised to take a taxi to the pier. The taxi fee is cheap, about CNY20.

Walk about 300 meters from Xiamen Railway Station to Wucun bus stop. Then take the bus No.21/ 3/ 659/ 19 and get off at Yizhong bus stop. Finally, walk about 300 meters to the hotel.
Answered by Quennel | Dec. 09, 2018 18:21

The ferry terminal to Gulangyu is in Xiamen but you arrive at Fuzhou airport. They are two different cities. There is no way to Gulangyu from FZ to Xiamen, and you have to take a bullet train and then transfer to the pier by bus or taxi. The taxi fee is about CNY15-20. If you want to get there by bus, you can walk about 250-300 meters to Xiamen Hotel to take the bus No.139 and get off at Shangjian bus stop. Then walk about 1000 meters to the pier.

Hello Quennel. Very well informed. Thank you. Hope I can enjoy Xiamen as like as others do.
