Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

Thank you. I am actually going to do this tomorrow morning, from Xiamen to Kinmen (Jinmen).
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

Cool! Let me know how much the ferry costs, if you don't mind, and how stressful or stressfree it is.

I am in the Kinmen (Jinmen) airport waiting to fly to tsipei. The ferry was good. Xiamen's terminal looks like an airport. Very glossy and comfie, and no problems getting a ticket. The ferry itself was comfortable too. Kinmen (Jinmen) itself is a lovely island. I couldnt get a flight out yesterday so i rented a scooter and drove around.

Ferry from Xiamen was 160rmb. Not sure how much from Kinmen (Jinmen).
