0% recommend this hotel

Discover the charms of Zhangzhou from the Four Points by Sheraton Zhangzhou. Surrounded by mountains and next to the Taiwan Strait, the city forms part of the southeastern coastal area of China’s Fujian Province and is just 35 minutes by car from our hotel, which is located in the center of Jiaomei Town. The Jiaomei High-Speed Railway Station is a five-minute drive away, while Xiamen and Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport (XMN) can both be reached in 35 minutes.

Step out our front door and into Wanyi Plaza, a short walk from offices, retail shops, a cinema, entertainment, and a shopping mall. In Zhangzhou, these contemporary offerings mix with thousands of iconic Hakka roundhouses and ancient temples. For something even more archaeologically extraordinary, visit Dongshan Island. Its Ancient Town was built hundreds of years ago, during the Ming dynasty. Or catch a ferry at Xiamen’s Pier to Gulangyu Island, where the region’s colonial past combines with a storied piano museum.

Back in Zhangzhou, the Nanjing Zhuma Opera (Bamboo Horse Opera) and Zhanghzhou Xiang Opera are must-sees. You can also experience the local culture via Fujian handicrafts, including seashell pictures, puppet carvings, and jade trinkets.

Beyond urban attractions, there are seemingly endless opportunities to embrace nature. Xiamen Wildlife Zoo features exotic animals, while Tianzhu Mountain National Forest Park is a mere 20 minutes away. Wutian Mountain—South Fujian’s highest peak—is also just a short drive and Dream Valley, home to the region’s largest group of waterfalls, lives up to its name in every way.

Only eight kilometers from the hotel, you can soak in the pools of Riyuegu Hot Spring Park. And for a little more but not too much action, join Changtai Mayang Drifting and take a ride in a raft. If you prefer to stick to land, the seashore at Maluan Bay offers unforgettable views.

No matter where you explore, energize with the region’s famous fruits, such as oranges, longan, pomelos, and pineapples. Or stop off for a delicious seafood meal featuring prawns, abalone, mud crabs, and lobster. Other native delicacies include seasoned noodles served in pork broth, Nasheng sesame dates, Nasheng salty duck, and the popular Xiaoxi pillow cake, which is often served with tea.
