Learn and train how to play badminton with a coach. It's a fun activity, cheap, can get you fit, really popular with locals and the coaches don't speak English. Plenty of immersion in Chinese.

As for more standard tourist things, do some research about a trip to see the Tulou round houses a couple hours away.

Everyone goes to Gulangyu Island. Read up on that and see if it appeals.

The Fujian coast in general is a great place for fresh seafood. Xiamen is no exception. Learn how to order several kinds of fish and several kinds of other, non-fish, seafood items such as shrimp, crabs, and bivalve shellfish (molluscs.) You will need a few preparation terms such as steamed, boiled, and fried.

There are lots of free tips and orientation basics on the Lonely Planet website: https://www.lonelyplanet.com/china/fujian/xiamen

 

Their China guidebook has 5 pages on Xiàmén specifically, and a chapter (17 pages) on Fújiàn overall.  You can buy it as a PDF and download it right away, with no DRM so you can put it on any device you like.
