Celebrate National Day with the locals in Xiamen, China via Silversea Cruises
Cruise guests sailing on Silver Shadow had the option of exploring Xiamen, which is located in southeast China’s Fujian Province, either on their own or they could participate in a city highlights tour.
Since we arrived to Xiamen during National Day, the sights were crowded. However, the general feeling in the air was one of celebration, similar to our July 4th celebrations in the US.
South Putuo Temple
Built during the Tang Dynasty, this temple is more than one thousand years ago. It is so named because it lies to the south of Putuoshan, one of the most respected Buddhist venues in China.
