The Botanical gardens are a worthwhile place to visit when in Xiamen and not peessed for time. There is a variety of sights but it is not always straightforward to navigate if you don't speak or read chinese. The English signs are sparse.

Xiamen is not a big city. A taxi will do at less than 100 RMB. There's a railroad park right next to the Botanical Garden's main gate, and it's worth going. You may plan to visit it after you come out of the botanical... More
