Jimei School Village
Jimei School Village was built in 1993 with funds provided by a famous philanthropist and educationalist who was a native of Xiamen. Tan Kah Kee (1874-1961) left Xiamen for Singapore and made his fortune in industry. As an overseas Chinese who contributed so much to his hometown, Tan is a revered figure in Xiamen. He also founded Xiamen University. His tomb is close to the entrance of Jimei School Village in Ao Park.
