Quanzhou has its fair share of the hideous white-tiled buildings that infest most cities; in fact, the tallest building in the city is already derelict, and new chunks of concrete masonry litter the sidewalk below every day -- well worth avoiding. Other tour books drone on about saintly tombs and Arab mosques, but the really interesting spots are to be found elsewhere.
