About Kinmen

Kinmen, or Golden Gate, County is made up of more than a dozen islands. It is opposite to Xiamen and has earned the reputation of “the park on the sea” because of its fine and beautiful natural landscape. At present, Kinmen has left behind the flames and smoke of its old battlefields and become a tourist attraction. Juguang Tower and Zhaishan Tunnel have become symbols of that past time. The pace of life in Kinmen is slow and unassuming. There are towns, ancient tombs, delicious food, military history and some artwork. Kinmen is a place where you can never have too much fun no matter how many times you visit.
