Xiamen University, a picturesque campus nestled between the sea and the "Five Old Men" mountains, is largely considered to be the most beautiful campus in China, the o­nly other coming close being Wuhan University. Its fun strolling the campus o­n a sunny morning or afternoon .First head for the lake in the center of campus. If you walk the paths around the lake you will discover arched bridges and an island with bronze life-size statues. From the lake you can see the modern architecture of the new administration and classroom buildings as well as the original ancient style dormitory buildings o­n the opposite sides. Behind those buildings you can hike up the mountains in the back. There are many trails that lead over the mountain to the botantical gardens o­n the other side.
If you walk to the East of the lake you will find paths leading to the ancient style original campus classrooms that surround a football stadium which has a view of the ocean. The ocean and the beautiful beach road are bordering the campus. There are beautiful walkways along the beach and benches for a relaxing time contemplating the waves--or stroll the 5.9km. Xiamen Boardwalk, which has to be o­ne of the nicest o­n the planet.
On the North side of campus are the bustling campus stores and many small restaurants. Our favorite restaurant along here is the Lin Duck House. If you want to take a hike over the mountain, the easy path is found by heading straight up the road from the Nan Pu Tuo Temple University Entrance .  Go past the round cafeteria and keep to your left o­n the road that ascends the mountain.You can take a nice stone path the whole way over the mountain and then down into the botanical gardens. You first pass through the military park and museum, and veer to the right and down.
