As a well-known tourism destination for visitors in and outside China, Kulangsu enjoys many titles as a great resort. In 2007, Kulangsu was recognized by The National Committee for Quality Evaluation of Tourist Attractions as “AAAAA National Tourist Attraction". It is located on the estuary of the Jiulong River, facing the city of Xiamen. Its heritage includes a settlement composed of 931 historical buildings, and represents a variety of local and international architectural styles, natural sceneries, historic roads and gardens. Gulangyu is an exceptional example of cultural fusion.
Located at the side of Huandao Road, Wenchuang Village of Zengcuoan covers an area of 1.25 square kilometers and is honored as “China's most artistic fishing village” by tourists from home and abroad. Surrounded by mountains and the sea with Xiamen University in the neighborhood, Zengcuoan spontaneously established the initial business of Wenchuang Village. This small fishing village accommodates a group of talented and creative youth who love culture and art, running fascinating stores which annually attract over 10 million tourists. These stores have not only boosted urban vitality but also created tremendous social and economic benefits. The former small fishing village has become a well-deserved Wenchuang Park today.
