This island is very popular due to the Mazu Temple which is located on this island. Many people will come over here to pray especially during the Mazu festival. Beside the local Chinese, the Taiwanese will come here too by boat from Taiwan island and during this festival, the Taiwanese doesn’t require any visa to visit this island. Even the locals will need to show their ID card to purchase the ticket and so do the foreigner will need to show their passport which are the requirement to this island. Without the id for locals or the passport for foreigner, you will not able to buy any ticket. If it’s during winter season, pls remember to bring a wind coat as the wind is quite strong on the island. A must to visit place when in Putian.

As with most other temples and sights in China, in order to fully appreciate the beauty and history, will need to do some research beforehand
Mazu is a famous goddess in chinese history and most chinese educated students would be somewhat familiar with her.
Need a ferry to get to this island ... crowded and may see livestock beside you ... the islanders bring these with them.
There will constantly be people selling local tours of sorts. Wont be too expensive, but not sure whether you will end up shopping more than you are sight seeing

This is the old city gate built thousand of year ago. It is also call “小天安门” because it resemble the one in Beijing. It the remaining of one of the small gate in Putian. However, the area around it is bustling with activities. A good place to visit for shopping and local delicacies.

The living pace is very slow and peaceful compare to city area. What i like most here is people are those old people are very more down to earth and warm. Remember when i first came back to their hometown as a kid i can't adapt as not much activities for youngsters. But as time passes, now i am able to appreciate the nature and i love it even more.

As many Asian temples, this place is peaceful.
While you visit, it's easy to see the monks practicing martial arts, praying or meditating.
I was amazed (in a good and honest way) of the kids -monks actually- that are being trained as little warriors. They can easily kill you five times before you touch the floor.
Indeed is quite far, but if you speak Chinese or go with Chinese speakers it worth the visit. When and where do you have the chance to visit a Shaolin temple?
