About our home

Ni Hao!
We live on the 28th floor of a 32 floor apartment building. We have been living here for over 5 months now. It is a very spacious apartment with an open plan living/dining/kitchen area. We have 3 bedrooms, the first, and smallest, is being used as a kids play room. We have a futon, plus a single bed and a crib in the large second bedroom. The crib can easily be taken out. There are 2 bathrooms, both with showers, and the master bathroom has a jacuzzi pool. In the lobby of our building there is a small store where you can buy most essentials. We have 2 bikes that can be used which come with child seats if needed (these can easily be taken off).

Where is it?


Xiamen is a truly beautiful city. Compared to other cities in China, it is very clean, open, and not crowded. There are many restaurants nearby, as well as a couple of stores that cater to the ex pat community and sell some items that are harder to come by in Chinese stores. We live across from Haiwan Park where there is an amusement park, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and a health club! The lake is also a 5 minute walk away. It is very easy to get around on foot, bike, bus or taxi. You wouldn't want to rent a car here...But you could try! We have a ton of taxi cards that give the name and addresses of a variety places that make it easier to get to where you want to go. Xiamen has a big international airport, and there are direct flights with KLM to Amsterdam. You can get to most Chinese cities from here as well.
