Xiamen: Gulangyu Island.

Xiamen: Gulangyu Island.

The island became a foreign enclave following the Treaty of Nanking in 1842, hence the predominantly Victorian-era style architecture throughout the island, of which many were offices and residences of Consulate-Generals, as well as that of the thriving expatriate business community. The Amoy dialect of Hokkien is spoken on the island.

  1. What a beautiful scene. This looks like a painting or something. I’ve never seen anything like this, but I would like to! If I never make it to China, I’m glad you post this stuff, this might be as close as I get.

    Thanks for posting the info too!
