Hi there, I am going on a trip with some Muslim friends to Xiamen this Saturday.
May i know where can I find Halal food restaurants there?
Kindly advise which one would be better choice of the above two options? I planning to go to Fuzhou with my two friends in August to visit to my relatives in Fuzhou.

Hi all, I would like to go to China for a year to learn Mandarin. (At the language school we learn putonghua.) Because I'm still a beginner teachers told me to go to a city close to Beijing. But I am thinking about going to Fuzhou instead... Do you think I can practice Mandarin in Fuzhou or would I probably learn the Fuzhou dialect and it may be difficult for me to get used to after learning putonghua? Thank you for your help in advance!
What is a recommended hotel in xiamen along zhongsan ? and what are the sites to see in xiamen
Hi, I will be traveling solo from Xiamen to Nanjing area (tulou town), then to Yongding area (another tulou town). I will arrive Nanjing tulou area on the 23th Dec, thinking of using public transportation to get around, staying in one of those tulou guesthouses. The next day , 24th Dec, I am thinking to hire a car to visit several Yongding tulou areas including Hongkeng Tulou group, Gaobei Tulou group, and Chuxi Tulou group. I will take the overnight train to Guangzhou on 24 Dec late evening.
How much would it cost to hire a car to see Yongding tulou areas including Hongkeng Tulou group, Gaobei Tulou group, and Chuxi Tulou group , then to Yongding Railway Station? Do you think it is realistic to see these three tulou groups in one day?
I am looking for other travelers willing to share the cost to hire a car for the day. Let me know!!
I speak Chinese, so a bit of advantage to communicate with the locals.

In 2007 I flew in and out of Xiamen and I am considering making a return visit this October. I will be staying in Shaoxing and from what I can see there are no direct trains and the distance seems a good days journey by bus or trains.
Can anyone suggest routes to Xiamen from Shaoxing other than flying?
I believe there is a bus from Xiamen to Hong Kong which is quicker than train. How can I buy a ticket for the bus before I arrive ? I will only be staying in Xiamen 2 days and I want to be sure to have a ticket. Also I don't speak much Chinese.Thanks.

in October 2007 I attempted to visit the Hakka commuinities in Yongding alone, but never made it. i got to Yonglan and no further. I am hoping to revisit China again next October and wonder what is the best way to see the Hakka people from Xiamen? Is it possible in one day and alone without speaking Chinese ?
Ballroom Dancing is what I enjoy as distinct from Disco et al.
Does Quangzhou have any, some, many places that I'd enjoy. Just dancing..not with Kareoke linked in.
Myself and my family are going to be travelling to Hong Kong soon and then onwards to China, and our flight arrives at Xiamen airport on the 11th Jan. My parents would like to bring some Lanolin creams (moisturiser made from sheep wool) for our extended family in China, as well as some whisky and wine for the imminent(ish) Chinese New Year. We are wondering how hard it is to get alcohol and I guess what would be considered cosmetic items into the China, and how high the tax would be on them? It would by no means be a lot of either, it's just that as we rarely return to China, we thought it'd be nice to bring some things are more valuable and easy to get where we currently live (New Zealand). Many thanks in advance!
Id be visiting the Fujian region on the 13th of December with my uncle and 2 others. He got us a tour package and from the itinerary, the first stop will be Xiamen.
The places stated on the itinerary are all tourist sites like Gulangyu Island, Piano Museum, Huxi Rock, just to list some.
The itinerary might be sufficed for the entire trip but then im quite an explorer myself hence i am wondering if there are any other 'small little places' that are worth for visits, or places that i can explore if i cant sleep at night, since im quite a night person.
We will be visiting Xiamen, Chaozhou, Shantou, Yongding, Chenghai, Zhangzhou.
1. Art Shopping. I love to shop for antiques and stuffs like that. Weird, artsy stuffs, deco. Are there any particular shops i can visit in each of the above mentioned places? So that i can prepare the amt of$$ to bring. haha. Most of my$$ will be spent on such stuffs.
2. Night market. Being a night person, such markets will be great. Are there any?
3. Weather. Hows the weather like from 13 to 20 December? I'm not too sure really. I did some checks and some sites stated that it could be 11 degrees and some stated 21. Would a jacket be enough?
Thats bout it. Any help is great appreciated. Thank you!
At home in Ireland we have many 'Charity Shops' where good clean items, unwanted by others are sold. We also have 'car boot sales' which serve the same purpose of recycling for a price unwanted items.
Is there anything like this in Xiamen? We have just moved here and will stay for at least 6 months, hopefully longer, but do not wish to buy lots of new stuff for our apartment.
