Fuzhou is not a popular destination among foreign tourists in China. But in case you find yourself in the city for whatever reason, might as well spend a few hours looking around.
High-speed train is a popular choice among travelers from Xiamen to Fuzhou and vice versa. There are trains throughout the day and advance booking is not necessary unless it’s a national holiday, but morning trains tend to be packed everyday.
Xiamen is the largest city of Fujian province although the capital is Fuzhou which is two hours by high speed train from Xiamen. Many Filipino-Chinese trace their roots in Fujian and this is evidenced by their Fookien dialect which can be heard everywhere in Xiamen.
