Visited this island for Mazu Temple during peak period. Very packed with people during peak period. Must take care of personal belongings.

This was supposed to be the highlight of our trip, but when we finally made it here, we were sad to see how much capitalism had crept into the area. I get it - tourism is where most of these folks get their money. Great,...More

A big monastery with a few beautiful sights. Very spiritual place. Restaurants owners a bit annoying, but that's OK. A MUST visit if in Putian!

If you're staying in Putian, this is definitely worth doing. If you don't speak Chinese, then do this with a translator or guide.

Mazu temple is one of the place you have to go when you're traveling in Fujian Putian. Mazu is a very important and historic figure in Putian's people's heart.

The Mazu Temple here is incredible. The people are very friendly and there are couple of nice beaches. Otherwise, there is very little on Meizhou. I absolutely recommend it for the temple, but that's it.
