Arcade buildings on Xiamen's Zhongshan Road to be restored

     As extra-special examples of Xiamen architecture, arcade buildings are preserved very well in the city. The architectural style commonly seen in the city was introduced into Xiamen from Southeast Asia. In the process of urbanization, arcade buildings have faded away in the cities of south China.
