Explore Shapowei, the birth place of Xiamen
The area of Siming South Road between Yanwu Road and Dashengli railway and near the waters is called Xiamen Port, or Xiamen Harbor in the old Xiamen, and the Shapowei sheltered dock is the most divine place in all of Xiamen Harbor.

As the only sheltered dock in Xiamen downtown, Shapowei's history is older than the Ming Dynasty (1368?1644 AD). During its most prosperous period, the dock saw over 20,000 persons and nearly 4,000 fishing boats. It is the birth place of Xiamen, the cradle of the city, holding so many of the childhood memories of Xiamen natives, and as it has witnessed the growth of generations of Xiamen, after years of baptism quietly its elegance has faded.

Shapowei sheltered dock hides behind University Avenue, in front of Yanwu Bridge and adjacent to a Gallery. It is not easy to find without a careful grasp for direction. And now, the Shapo sheltered dock seems to have lost its busy atmosphere and is now a bit dilapidated and desolate, having gradually been forgotten near the expanse of water with the air being mixed with the taste of the sea. Visiting it now you may find a scene of dry clothes on the roadside, a parked garbage truck in the street, and a barking puppy nearby, the dock surrounded by irregular residential buildings on a very narrow road with very crowded houses, most humble and somewhat dim.
