our beloved Hong Kong<-->Xiamen Ferry is
out of service (our favorite--we
took this ferry between Hong Kong and Xiamen
over 30 times!). The Gulangyu Ferry, by the way, runs every
15 minutes or so.
to and from Xiamen? From non-Asian countries without
direct flights to Xiamen, fly to Hong Kong and take the 9 1/2 hour HK-Xiamen
bus on the scenic freeway. The $40-50 USD Fare includes a 1/2 hour lunch
in a nice hotel.
Take a boat,a train
or a bus to Shenzhen (neighbors Hong Kong); Shenzhen
buses to Xiamen are cheaper, but the border crossing is a pain, and you
must run the gauntlet of folks who'll grab your bags for you, despite
your protests, lug them up and down steps, and then charge you a pretty
penny (if you get your luggage back at all). One of my friends broke his
leg when he fell down the steps chasing a man who'd taken his luggage.
And the border's pickpockets are brazen. I suggest you avoid the Shenzhen
border crossing (unless you take the HK--Shenzhen Ferry, which is fine).
Hong Kong--Xiamen bus tickets are available at many
HK travel services.

Airport: Incheon, in Seoul! If you fly to Xiamen, we suggest
going through our favorite airport--Seoul. Voted the planet's best airport,
it has free internet, nice free lounges with couches for snoozing, etc--and
you don't have to deal with checking luggage through customs in China
or Hong Kong, and receiving the miniscule "Inter-Asia" luggage
