Have taken a cab outside cruise port to zhongshan Road which is not too far, it's a tourist friendly spot with small shops and local cuisine. Have not gotten chance to explore the buildings near the port though.
About Xiamen, China
Xiamen was recently voted China's cleanest city, and its surrounding countryside offers spectacular scenery and pleasant tree-lined beaches. Gulangyu, also known as Piano Island, is a popular, peaceful weekend getaway. Xiamen's Botanical Garden is a nature lover's paradise. And the Buddhist Nanputao Temple, dating back to the Tang Dynasty, is a national treasure.

I highly recommend booking an excursion for this port or just going in to town. I guess this is a huge vacation destination for locals and all the ferry tickets to the island were booked up. We waited in long lines to get a ticket and found out we couldn't leave for a few hours, allowing us very little time for the island. We ended up selling the tickets and just had lunch in town. We were there on a sunday, it may not be much an issue on other days.
