Just visited this recreation village after lunch. Tonnes of interesting food stalls on offer. Have you ever seen live sardines in a hot pot restaurant? If not, there are plenty on display. Friendly service and lots of action to be seen!

Since it is too much commercialized, the shops, snack bars etc were shouting at passengers constantly, which travellers were deeply annoyed. We escaped from this strange place within 5 minutes.

We went there for the local seafood but finding the restaurant took us through the winding narrow lanes filled with plenty of local food, Taiwanese snacks (as Xiamen is very close to Taiwan), souvenirs, clothings, sweets, pottery. It was super hot that evening, crowded and...More
