Day 1 Xiamen
Day 2 Xiamen - Nanjing (by automobile)
After breakfast car ride to Nanjing to visit the World Cultural Heritage Tianluokeng Hakka Village Cluster. Seen from the hill above, you'll find the architectural miracle looks like a table of Chinese dishes, figuratively nicknamed 'four dishes with a soup'.
Go on by visiting the crooked building – Yuchang Mansion.
Afterwards, stroll around the Taxia Village and see if you could sample the unique Hakka culture.
Tea Factory visit midway, during which you'll mix with the hospitable community and experience the life and work of local tea farmers -- picking tea leaves and brewing tea, and sipping the finest tea on earth. Overnight in the local Hakka guesthouse.
Day 3 Nanjing - Chuxi (by automobile)
After breakfast car ride to the Chuxi Hakka Village Cluster, where you'll gaze at perhaps the oldest Hakka Building – Jiqing Mansion.
Then comes the Hakka Building Museum, terraced fields, and the local primary school. We'll call it a day after having a bird's eye view of the Chuxi Hakka building from the viewing platform.
Overnight in the local Hakka Building – Yuqing Mansion.
Day 4 Chuxi - Xiamen (by automobile)
After breakfast transfer back to Xiamen. A short ferry ride away from Xiamen to the Gulangyu Island, whose name which literally means 'drum wave islet', derived from the gentle, persistent, pounding of the waves on its shores.
A 19th-century enclave for the Westerners, Gulangyu boasts plenty of Victorian-style buildings on the islet, among which the Shuzhuang Garden, as well as the only Piano Museum in China -- Stroll the streets of Gulangyu, you can often hear classical music being played, not surprising, given that you can find one piano in every five homes here.
Then climb on the landmark of the Gulangyu Island, the Sunlight Rock, for a bird's eye view of the Gulangyu Island. Bird Garden, Foreign Consulates and Catholic churches are also included in your must-sees.
Day 5 Xiamen
Rise early and have breakfast. With a fresh wind in your face, the sun on your skin and a beautiful landscape to take a look at, head towards the Island Ring Road, recognized as one of the 20 most famous scenic spots in China. Luckily enough you'll find Xiamen's major tourist hotspots along the way, such as the International Conference & Exhibition Centre.
Optional trip with the bicycle, or even tricycle, really means some fun, if you're slightly on your mood today.
