Kinmen Island - 金門

Going aboard Uni Air

Approaching Kinmen Island

It has been said that Kinmen is a 'garden built upon a fortress. Indeed, Kinmen is a beautiful island which seems laid back, peaceful, very green & luscious. Kinmen is made up of 15 islands & islets at the junction of the mouth of the Chiulung River & Xiamen of mainland China. The largest islands are Kinmen & Liehyu (aka Little Kinmen). These are the only two islands open to tourism. 3 islets are controlled by mainland China, the other 12 by Taiwan. Kinmen is divided into districts: Kincheng, Kinhu, Kinning, Kinsha, & Liehyu.
