The Gate of China

Xiamen City in Fujian Province
4 OCT 2014 | From Mo of China

This postcard shows a view of Xiamen, a beautiful coastal city in Fujian Province in China. The architecture of Xiamen reflects the Western influences from countries that invaded the city for many years - England, France, Germany, USA, and even Japan.

Xiamen is a tourist city of Fujian Province famous for its attractive seascape. As one of the major seaports since ancient times, it boasts a wide gulf with deep water but without freezing and silting. Xiamen means "door to the house", referring to the city's centuries-old role as a gateway to China. The name of 'Xiamen' was consequently given, which means 'a gate of China'.
