New ferry lines between Fujian and Taiwan are added, to ensure a convenient and easily-accessible transportation service to people who'll commute between the two places during the forthcoming Spring Festival.
The four routes, Pingtan-Taipei, Pingtan-Taichung, Xiamen-Taichung and Xiamen-Keelung will transport about 60,000 passengers during the Spring Festival travel rush. Additionally, the routes of Xiamen-Kinmen, Mawei-Matsu, Quanzhou-Kinmen and Huangqi-Matsu will carry more than 530,000 passengers during the period.
Fujian has also prepared buses, which will run between Fuzhou International Airport and Aoqian port, as well as Xiamen Airport and Wutong port to guarantee a fast transit.
The first Light Festival in Guanyin Mountain of Xiamen's Siming district was unveiled on Feb 2.
Xiamen was honored as a "City of Marathon" by the Chinese Athletics Association (CAA) at the opening ceremony of China Marathon Expo on Jan 4.
