Xiamen, China, June 14, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- This summer the Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen announces it exciting outdoor entertainment options to start the fun off right. For starters, the Millennium’s outdoor menu is introducing a BBQ pool party, a Wuyuan Bay dinner reception, an all out a catered evening dinner party onboard a ship cruising the Lujiang, and so much more. All of these opportunities await for a personalized outdoor catered event.
For those visiting Xiamen for the first time, the Millennium Harbourview Hotel is located centrally within the bustling Xiamen cosmopolitan. A landmark hotel, it stretches upwards over 22 stories, while commanding a priceless view of Xiamen city’s downtown.
For a walk outside the hotel, take a 5 minute stroll down to Zhongshan Road, Xiamen’s famous pedestrian only avenue, lined with commerce from brand name stores to local specialty stalls. Dating back over 100 years, Zhongshan Road has become a popular commercial street from as early as 1949, following its initial pavement of asphalt (the first asphalt road in Xiamen). This road has become an exclusive pedestrian avenue as of 2004, and has developed its own hip culture - now the trendy place to go for a festive stroll and shopping.
After meandering West to the end of Zhongshan Road, you come up to the ferry boat that will take you to Gulangyu Island. Also known as “Piano Island,” this island is well known for its piano museum and long musical heritage. Discover here the historical European colonial architecture of past Consulate Generals dating back to the mid 1800s. Continue into the island to reach the best deals on souvenirs from paintings, clothing, pearls, to local snacks such as the chewy sweet balls known as “Mua Ji.”
From the Millennium Hotel, a 5 minute drive South down Siming Road takes you to the famous Nanputuo Temple, the well known Buddhist temple dating back to 686. There it is home to more than 100 monks and hosts China’s oldest Buddhist manuscripts, one translated around 2,000 years ago. There you may purchase a box of their home-made “Su Bing” vegetarian cookies, produced there for over 100 years.
After a day out on the town, the Millennium Harbourview Hotel makes you feel relaxed and right at home with an array of recreational and dining choices. From complimentary WIFI high-speed internet access throughout the hotel, a fully appointed fitness center, sauna, outdoor pool and barbeque garden, to 24 hour dinning, including 4 international style restaurants and 2 bars…you may enjoy yourself just as you like it.
On the other hand, when the time comes for taking care of business, the Millennium Harbourview Hotel’s more than 1,000sqm of brand newly appointed conference and meeting facilities are being unveiled for hosting your every business function. The professional staff streamline your event planning, adeptly coordinating every aspect to allow you a carefree and successful meeting.
