The view near the shore looks amazing and is breathtakingly beautiful. Once you pay the hefty fees of 130 RMB and enter, the perspective changes. The guides inside conduct a tour of the entire ship. But to your dismay the entire tour is in Cantonese. A 4D movie show also in Cantonese. Most signs and trivias are in Cantonese. Not... More

It's a little out of the way, about 45-50mins from Futian District, but worth a look. The old aircraft carrier looks a little tired now, and is not helped by the various nick-nack shops and food oulets onboard that don't sit too well with this kind of attraction. It's good to see onboard and get a feel of what must... More

With RMB130 what do you expect? I'm impressed with the weapon and radar system. During the 80s all these military weapons information were not accessible, you need a super spies to obtain all these picture. But now, we are lucky can view and touch all these weapons. Yes, I agree some part are rusty, and maybe they can re-create the... More

It could be different to visit a old russian carrier, but not. The price is 150 Yuan and what you get for it ? yes a old carrier with a lot of rust and very bad maintain. A lot of Chinese shop onboard that there have nothing with the vessel to do. Stay on the pier and take free photos.

I must say there is nothing inaccurate about the negative reviews already posted, all too true. However on the positive side all the cool bits are still there. Flight desk, island, missile batteries, hangar, a few aircraft for scale, a view out the bridge windows. All well worth the price of admission in my opinion. There is also a lot... More

Having read so much praise about this attraction I was so so disapointing 130RMB to walk around a scrapped ship. None of the entry fee is used to maintain the ship, it is in a seriously bad condition - i do feel sorry for any of its past crew if they ever managed to visit this now appalling venue. no... More

On the plus side, this decaying heap is in moored in a beautiful location, a kind of planned city with shops, hotels, restaurants and a park. From a historical and nautical standpoint, being able to walk around inside a real naval vessel is interesting, if you're into that kind of thing. On the minus side, the Minsk is slowly rusting...
