Wanshi Botanical Garden

This enormous green space encompasses a number of rare botanical zones and interesting cultural sites. 

Wanshi Botanical Garden is home to a remarkable collection of more than 6,500 species of tropical and subtropical flora spread across 29 secondary gardens. Spend an afternoon inspecting its diverse plant life and pleasant temples.

The garden’s name means “10,000 Stones,” in reference to its many strangely shaped rocks. Try to spot these unusual boulders as you make your way through the grounds. Founded in 1960, the garden established vegetation that has flourished over the years. Now you can enjoy numerous mature tropical trees and dense bamboo forests. 

As you stroll through the garden, look for a now-famous redwood tree planted by former U.S. President Richard Nixon. The gardens are also home to the site where Chinese military leader Zheng Chenggong is said to have executed his cousin Zheng Lian. 

Admire the collections of eucalyptus, orchids, bonsai, palms and medicinal plants. Look closely and you’ll see some of the garden’s rocks and cliffs are marked with ancient calligraphic inscriptions.

Be sure to see the Heaven's Border Temple, on top of a hill near the garden’s western entrance. From the peak of this hill, enjoy scenic views over the garden and Xiamen. If you need a break during the ascent, stop at the small store located about halfway up the hill for drinks and snacks.

Visit the Fir Garden, which has over 70 varieties of plants, including cypress, pine and cedar trees. Amble along the Bamboo Path, where you’ll find more than 200 different species of bamboo, including a rare square bamboo species. 

Don’t miss the garden’s enormous World of Cactus, said to be the largest cactus garden in the country with an area of 10 acres (4 hectares). More than 1,200 species of cacti are included in the garden’s outdoor exhibition area and greenhouse. 

Wanshi Botanical Garden is located in southeastern Xiamen. The garden is open daily and offers free admission before 7 a.m. Travel to the garden by local bus.

        在綠晶酒店後面,靠近廈大西村,附近有很多店,例如麥當勞、超市、四海遊龍和coco等,還有中國電信及工商銀行。 有電梯,房間都是電子鎖,房間網路訊號佳,但廁所有股霉味,可能是因為沒有對外窗,房間的窗戶外是走廊,而且無法上鎖,會一直聽到走動的聲音。

          厦門への旅行で、断続的に5泊しました。最初の3泊の時は、団体客が泊まっていたようで、上のクラスの部屋に泊まることができました。最後の2泊は、予約したクラスの部屋だったと思いますが、湯沸かし器がなく、少し不便でした。朝食は、毎日ほぼ同じ中国式のメニューで、やや単調でした。コーヒーとかあれば、良かったのですが。フロントに英語を話せるスタッフが1人しかいなくて、深夜に空港から到着したとき、英語を話せる人がいなくて、すこし意思の疎通がうまくいきませんでした。全体として、少し設備は古いですが、値段相応のホテルだったと思います。ロケーションは、厦門大学や華僑博物院、がすぐ近くで、バス停も近く、悪くなかったです。近くには、スーパーやビュッフェスタイルの中華の店もあります。
