historical magic of xiamen



From 282 A.D. , Xiamen has its form of birth.

To trace the magic of Xiamen , you can never neglect its historical magic. In the book Amoy Magic writen by Dr. Bill Brown , lots of details were put inside . today I am just fascinated by the simple contrast of the photos differed by decades or even hundren year.

The above are some pictures for some decades ago , you can easily tell the wonderful change .

And by Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen , is the famous Zhongshan road , let us see how it is looked like in 1920-1930 . It is remarkably properous place in Xiamen even in China . Though it is minor in size , glamorous in nature.








Though the shape of building is not changed much , following Qi lou style , modernization can be easily found in the late photo,.



1920-30 the elevators were used here in this building , it is a place for pleasure , entertainment.



Siming road is across Zhongshan road , with Qi lou and people of joy.



Datong Road supposed to be more prosperous than Zhongshan Road at a time , you can still find it now , very insteresting. Even in a latest hot Chinese movie , Crazy racer , this area is chosen for the spot.




Siming Cinema , still standing proudly there , attracts lots of people for film watching .


More to see in Xiamen , its magic could never not been told in one day ...

Don't panic if you have a small bill when it's time to turn in your car. Many times, you can roll that amount into the payments on the next lease cars if you buy another car and other vehicle from the same dealer. Yes, you'll pay interest on your damages, but you'll never have to deal with writing a large, lump-sum check to cover your costs.
