I would love to be your buddy. I have never heard of Xiamen. Would you tell me about it?
What do people drive? How much does gas cost?
Glad to recieved your reply! And it is my pleasure to introduce Xiamen to you.
Xiamen, on the southeastern coast of China, to the west of Taiwan Strait, covers a total area of 1,565 square kilometers and has a permanent population of 2.17 million.
Dubbed "China's coziest city", Xiamen has a pleasant climate, picturesque views and clean and tidy environment. In 2002, Xiamen received the Gold Medal at the "International Nations in Bloom" competition in Stuttgart, Germany. Domestic awards have included "National Sanitary City", "National Garden City", "National Model City for Environmental Protection", "National Excellence in Tourism"and "National Top 10 Most Livable Cities".
Xiamen was one of the first four special economic zones (SEZ) in China. One of the few municipalities enjoying independent status in state economic planning, Xiamen enjoys provincial level autonomy and local legislative power in economic administration.
People in Xiamen usually go to work by bus, some drive by their own car. I don't have my own car,so I don't care about the gas price. Maybe is that Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) air mixed gas (heat: 12000 Kcal/m3): 4.00RMB/m3 for civic.
