For those foreign visitors who come to to Xiamen, or even to China for the first time, they may worry firstly about the transportation.
Actually, It is quite easy to for visitors get around without a private car. Taxis run 24 hours ago. The cost is only 8RMB/3 kms, plus 3RMB for fuel surcharges each ride.
There are also buses and BRT(bus rapid transportation). If visitors are not in a rush, they can try the pubic transportation. The cost for bus is 1RMB each ride, same cost to anywhere on the island, BRT is even cheaper, 0.5RMB each ride.
