Gulangyu's Houses.

As a place of residence for Westerners during Xiamen’s colonial past, Gulangyu is famous for its architecture and for hosting China’s only piano museum, giving it the nickname of “Piano Island” or “The Town of Pianos” (鋼琴之鄉) or “The Island of Music” (音樂之島). There are over 200 pianos on this island.

    Wow, the details in this are so fascinating! I really especially like the house in the middle, towards the left a bit…it has an outdoor patio area and it’s all checkered tile…it’s crazy! Love it!

Got something to say?
