Kinmen, Taiwan



Kinmen was (and still is) the frontier of the Chinese Civil war between the communist PRC and the capitalist ROC. Located just off the coast of Xiamen of China, Kinmen has today been transformed into a hot tourist destination due to the softened relationship between the both countries, and also because of the large number of preserved Minnan style buildings on the island.

Qin Inn is a bed & breakfast located inside the Shuitou settlement. Being housed inside a 100+ years old Minnan building, Qin Inn itselves serves as an excellent tourist attraction for those who passes by. The owner carefully redecorated this historic building, keeping its originality and in the same time bringing in modern comform for those who visit today.


Overlooking the Shuitou Settlement from Qin Inn’s roof top, and indulge yourself in the gloriest history of Kinmen’s past.
