Fujian Tours - 6 Best Fujian Tours Packages 2024

Fujian Province, located on the southeastern coast of China, is known for its rich heritage, strikingly diverse landscapes, and historical significance. This storied land hosts an array of UNESCO World Heritage marvels, including three sites celebrated for their cultural significance: Gulangyu Island, remarkable as a historical international settlement; Fujian Tulou, an example of a building tradition and function exemplifying a particular type of communal living; the ancient city of Quanzhou, once a thriving port of the maritime Silk Road; Wuyishan Mountain earns a dual World Natural & Cultural Heritage site. In addition, Xiapu region is a lesser-known gem, often lauded as China's most picturesque coastline. It is a paradise for photographers, ranking among the nation's top 10 photography spots.

Planning your Fujian tour:
A typical Fujian tour takes around 5 days. Start your trip in Xiamen, and spend 1-2 days exploring the city. Then, allocate 1-2 days to visit the Fujian Tulou and another 2 days to explore Wuyishan. If you are passionate about photography, consider spending 2-4 days in Xiapu . If you are more interested in culture and history, plan 1-2 days to visit Quanzhou.

Asia Odyssey Travel offers a variety of Fujian Tours tailored to different interests:

For History and culture enthusiasts, Quanzhou was one of the most significant ports in the world during the Song and Yuan dynasties, serving as a major hub on the Maritime Silk Road.

Bhutan 6D5N
Our trip in Bhutan was perfect and beyond expectation. I would like to pay special thanks to our exceptional guide who was being kind and considerate all the time. Without him and our lovely driver, none of these would happen. Big thanks also goes to the back office staff for organising the entire itinerary, never impatient with our back-and-forth emails. I never would have imagined that the result out of my random selection of travel agents could be anything closer to what I have experienced. You’re truly a great company that offers great value and put customer’s needs as the top priority. I just wanted to express my gratitude here again, thank you all for the efforts! Bhutan is a beautiful country with so many things to offer, I only caught a glimpse this time as a starter. I will surely choose you again and make referrals to my friends. Thank you very much for the wonderful memory.
