In case you get lost on Gulangyu Island, the authority has recently rolled out a “Smart Gulangyu” mobile phone client software to help you enjoy your stay on the island, reported Xiamen Evening News Saturday.

The software, which is the first of its kind among scenic spots in China, will act as your smart guide on the island. News, weather information, real-time tourist numbers on Gulangyu Island and other information are available on its home page.

The client can provide inquiries for the Xiamen-Gulangyu ferry services, buses, trains and flights, and offer navigation services based on an e-map that marks the locations of the tourist attractions, hotels, public toilets, shopping malls and boutique stores on the island.

And there is also a column that offers basic introduction of the tourist attractions on Gulangyu Island. The system also kindly picks up six travel routes for self-tour tourists.

The software is currently available for Android smartphones. The authority said they will further enrich the system, and develop an iOS-version and windows phone-version in the near future.
