It would be interesting for those, who like old cannons. For all others there would be nothing special - a bit of history, statues, cannons. The fortress was build a hundred years ago, so it does not look old. The entrance fee is 25 yuan....More

Hulishan Fort is beautiful seaside attraction that allows visitors a glimpse into the history of Xiamen Island. For only 24元 one can enjoy well tended gardens and view old artillery canons, or take a walk to the highest points to look out over the sea....More
