to take a look at, a trip with the bicycle really means some fun. Along the Island Ring Road, you will find some major tourist attractions, such as the International Conference & Exhibition Centre, the Taiwan Folk Village, the Music Park , and Hulishan Fort. Xiamen International Marathons is held on the first Saturday of January every year since 2004. The Whole course runs largely through the scenic sections of the city, including Island Ring Road and large landscaped areas, which are flat and considered to be ideal for a marathon race.

It’s an integral part of the Gulangyu Islet – Wanshi Mountain National Key Scenic Spot, covering an area of 4.93 square kilometers. The garden is set on rolling hills and dotted with grotesque rocks, forming a dramatic rocky landscape. The granite boulders throughout the garden are graced with calligraphic inscriptions of ancient men of letters. There are also various provincial- and municipal-level cultural heritage sites in the garden, including the site of execution of Zheng Lian by Zheng Chenggong (Koxinga), the site where Zheng Chenggong used to read classics, the terrace built in memory of killed soldiers from Penghu. The garden is also home to several of Southern Fujian’s most renowned temples, including the Heaven’s Border Temple, the Wanshi Lotus Temple, and the Eternal Peace Rock Temple.
The garden, first built in 1960, contains more than 6,300 kinds of tropical and subtropical ornamental plants and comprises 10-plus unique smaller dedicated gardens, such as the psammophytes area, the “Palm Island”, the “Rainforest World”, and the araucaria lawn. In 1984, Deng Xiaoping, the chief architect of China’s reform and opening-up drive, personally planted a Nepal camphor on the araucaria lawn.
