You can book Gulangyu Resort in advance, so that you can wander around there at night. It is very comfortable. And Huandao Road in Xiamen is also a good place to travel, as there are beautiful sand beach for you to take relax. Besides, you can find many delicious snacks on Zhongshan Road.

Thanks for your asking. I believe Gulangyu is a great choice. There, you can enjoy the touch of the wind, bathe in the sun and listen to the sea tide. All these will help you forgot all sorrows and miseries. If you want to refresh yourself , you can go there.
