One of the best places to explore around Xiamen is the Shapowei District and Huaxin Road, which is currently seen as a rapidly growing art scene steeped in local roots. You first meet up with your guide at Baicheng Beach Bus Station, where you will be led to Yanwu Bridge. This beautifully designed bridge curves around the coast out over the water. After the spectacular architecture of this bridge, you'll be visiting the surrounding cultural and artistic zones. The Shapowei Art Zone, in particular, has rapidly become a favorite destination for artists and tourists looking to experience the local cultural color. This area used to be a shelter wharf, and even today many fishermen's boats can be found resting on the earth. Now you'll see it as a vibrantly colorful cultural site with a skater park, art studios and boutiques. It's popular for its leaning towards the arts and cuisine with its multiple specialty restaurants. Your final stop is at the Yuanzhi Villa Garden Hostel, with its beautiful European style design and idyllic garden area. It's a perfect way to end an elegantly artistic tour.
