Xiamen’s burgeoning nightlife scene is vibrant enough to draw in the revellers, yet no where as lavish as the likes of Shanghai and Beijing’s wild parties.

‘1801’ and ‘Dushang’ are popular with crowds, drawing a big gathering that parties throughout the night. These establishments, while legitimate, can be very crowded, so be sure to watch out for yourself.

You can’t mention nightlife in Xiamen without talking about Haiwan Park, the main spot for discovering Xiamen’s nightlife scene. It is home to an array of clubs, pubs and discotheques that include live entertainment bands, drinking holes and lots of places to boogie.
