The Sweet Home, the Gorgeous Coastline

November 7th to 10th will witness the7th Session of China (Xiamen) International Boat Show at XiamenMarina, Wuyuan Bay. As the new lounge of Xiamen, where is the specific locationof Wuyuan Bay? And how did it derive its name? And where is the location ofMusic Island, the seat of the exhibition on land? It is the right time toreveal the answers. 

Located in the northeast of Xiamen Island,Wuyuan Bay lies between Xiamen Gaoqi Airport and Xiang’an Tunnel, two vitaltransport hubs in Xiamen. It is the only rare area which combines a variety ofrare natural resources, like hot spring, vegetation, wetland, and bay. There isalso a considerable number of cultural relics of She People, an ethnic minorityin China. Hence it is praised as the Sweet Home among China’s coastal citieswith its gorgeous coastline. The bay covers an area of 12.57 square kilometers(water area included), approximately one eleventh of Xiamen Island. 


Adjacent to Wutong Land-air Through Port,five arch bridges have been constructed at Wuyuan Bay. The bay derived its name(literally, five circles in Chinese) from the five subsequent circles from thearches and their reflected inverted images in water; meanwhile, the name alsoimplies harmony between humankind and heaven, earth, the sun and the moon, inthat its Chinese name has such connotations, and the inalienable kinshipbetween Fujian Province and Taiwan in the chinese homophone.

Located respectively in the east and westof Xiamen Island, Wuyuan Bay and Yundang Lake are compared to two pearls,shining brightly. Yundang Lake is nicknamed the lounge of Xiamen; likewise,Wuyuan Bay is rightly called the new lounge of Xiamen for its specialgeographic location and amazing development. 


Like the eye of Wuyuan Bay, Music Islandis located at the center of the inner bay and near Tianyuan Bridge. With anoverall coastline of 1.07 km, Music Island is 430 meters at its longest and 210meters at its widest, covering an overall area of 63.400 square meters, half ofwhich is in the open. So far, nearly 100 large-scale events have been hostedhere, including those of famous brands like Mini Cooper. 

The open square covers an area ofapproximately 35, 000 square meters, of which the man-made front beach is 12,000 square meters; a wooden stage has been erected on the level front square againstthe background of the back square. 


Against the background of the dense foreston the back square, a forest venue is created: facing the sea, Wuyuan BayBridge and the blue open are visible through the shades of clusters of palmtrees, surrounded by the beach, red woods, wood pavements, reed marshes, rarebirds, and elegant black swans…What a noble venue for the educated elite! 

On the right front of the square is thestatue of Jiang Wenye, a famed musician. He is rated as the forerunner ofChinese modern music. Having an ancestry in Yongding County, Fujian Province,he was born in Taiwan in 1910 and moved to Xiamen in 1916. About five meterstall, the statue was cast in copper of the composer in gaze and meditation,against the music background of circling scores and soaring egrets as portrayedrealistically in The Reverie of Egrets,the second movement of A Symphonic Sketchfrom a Southern Island, his wide acclaimed symphony series.
