The Port for Xiamen China is far enough away from the center of town, that you can not walk. The Chinese authorities there will make you take a bus from the port. Depending on how you get to the port, the ship may provide a bus or the city might. More than likely, you will have to take a bus that the cruise ship provides. I don't know if you will be allowed to take Taxi's from the port, but more than likely not. Many ports (especially in China) have high security and they don't allow people to walk out of the Port gates to catch a cab. Xiamen is safe and comfortable. You should read more about Xiamen in my other blog post. You can access it by clicking on the drop down menu (on the sidebar) that says "Choose A Location).
