Yang Tao Hotel, An Hai Garden (Yang Tao Yuan Zi An Hai Hua Yuan Dian 杨桃院子安海花园店)

In 2009, a couple, Wu Jin and Wang Jing Yun, walked into this garden and were so impressed by the evocative feeling of the fruit trees and surroundings that they decided to open a bed-and-breakfast here. Their vision turned into the first Yang Tao hotel, which was one of the pioneering B&Bs on Kulangsu. The sleek garden bar is a great place for a drink, even for non-guests.

(There are now two other Yang Tao properties on the island: the elegant Zhong Hua Red Ink branch and the glorious Fu Xing Castle.)

Address: Anhai Lu 8, Gulangyu, Xiamen, Fujian, China
