Totally overrun with domestic tourists, the shops are pretty cookie cutter, and the food is overpriced. STILL, it's worth visiting for: a) A car-free island in China! b). Cool museums with great pianos c). Decent beaches. d). The character that still just barely exists under the surface, especially on side streets.

If you have ever wondered what a Chinese beach town would look like then Gulangyu is the place for you. The island was named 'drum waves' because of the sounds the rolling water make against the reefs and rocks. This car-free island is covered in gorgeous Victorian style houses because of various countries occupancy of the island over the years. Gulangyu is an island that will surprise and amaze you.

GuLangYu is a nice place ,but don't go there when travel season, too much people will make the island like a sardine can. GuLangYu's winter is not bad.

鼓浪屿是一个非常棒的地方,这里风景迷人充满诱惑,在海滩岸礁小坐吹着海风是无比的美好。海是充满活力的地方,敞开胸怀拥抱那些来自五湖四海的人们在这里共同体验这份美好。相信那些没有来过鼓浪屿的人们会得到不一样的感受和体验。水的温度随着季节的变化而变化,岛屿的温度随着时间的流逝变得越来越温暖。
