Questions & Answers on Xiamen Cruise
Asked by Jerry from USA | Apr. 09, 2018 21:12Reply
Do I need to reserve ferry tickets in advance to go from Xiamen to Kinmen in June?
We are 2 adults and 2 children. Are children free to travel?

You are advised to book the tickets in advance. But as I know, the booking page only has Chinese version. Thus you can ask help for your Chinese friends. If not, see whether if the hotel staff can book the tickets for you. Hope helpful!
