Gulangyu’s beautiful view.

Gulangyu's beautiful view.

Visitors can reach Gulangyu by steamship from Xiamen City in about 5 minutes. Gulangyu Island is renowned for its delicate natural beauty, its ancient relics, and its varied architecture. The Chinese name also has musical roots, as gu lang means drum waves so-called because of the sound generated by the ocean waves hitting the reefs. Yu means “islet”.

    That’s a pretty amazing view. I like how the sky is so dark here, it seems so ominous, and the island seems to be emitting it’s own protective light. :)
