Located in the south of Gulangyu, the Sunlight Rock (Riguangyan) is the highest point of the island with 92.68 meters high above sea level.

From this place, you can get a bird's-eye view of the entire Xiamen and Gulangyu Island, and if you are lucky, you can have a glance of Jinmen of Taiwan which is on the other side of Taiwan Strait. The way to the top of the spot is leisurely, along with a few nice sceneries of Gulangyu Islet, such as "a piece of tile", "Dragon's cave at the Egret River", "Ancient Cave of Summer Resort (Gubishu Dong)", "Dragon's Head Hill Relics", "Platform for Training Sailors (Shuicao Tai)", "one hundred meters high platform". At the foot of the Sunlight Rock, there is the Memorial Hall of Zheng Chenggong (1624锛1662), a national hero of China, who once stationed troops in Gulangyu and named the Sunlight Rock. It was built in honor of the hero's feats that he expelled the Dutch colonists from Taiwan in and recovered it.

Admission: 80 yuan (including Sunlight Rock, Shuzhuang Garden, Organ Museum and Carving Museum)

Opening Hours: 7:00鈥20:45

How to get there: take bus 2, 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 25 and get off at Lujiang Road, and then by a boat to the Gulangyu Island, and walk to the Sunlight Rock.

The top of the Sunlight rock is small, so it is crowd in the day. So you can go there in the evening or in the morning, and you can get a cheaper ticket before 7 o鈥檆lock in the morning.
