Quanzhou: Full–Day Highlights Sightseeing Tour

1. Quanzhou: Full–Day Highlights Sightseeing Tour

Meet your local guide at your Xiamen downtown hotel at 8:30am, and set off on your sightseeing tour. Due to the special location, Quanzhou has been China's marine door to exotic cultures since ancient times. As the starting point of the Sea Silk Road, it accepted diverse religions including Christianity, Islam and Manichaeism, and today Quanzhou is called the World Religions Museum. As the largest Buddhist temple in Fujian, Kaiyuan Temple has attracted many domestic and foreign travelers interested in Buddhist culture. Follow your guide to explore this complete set of courtyard galleries. Continue sightseeing at the Qingjing Mosque, initially built in 1009 and now the oldest Arab-style mosque in China. Discover the ancient history and unique blend of Arabic and Chinese architecture in this holy mosque. Stroll around the nearby Guandi Temple dedicated to Guan Yu, and visit the only museum in China specializing in overseas relations, the Quanzhou Maritime Museum, showcasing the important role that Quanzhou played in economic and cultural exchanges with foreign countries. Afterwards, your local guide will transfer you back to Xiamen and drop you off at your hotel to conclude the trip.
