It was Ok, interesting museum and nice walking trails. Good for a day trip! Also a couple sorry looking Pandas! Island was occupied by the British and some of architecture reflects the character of the English countryside.

I liked the Ferry and the musea about the war with Japan. Some nice scenery and possible to make a tour on a mini bus.

Just a quick boat trip from the harbor gets you to the birthplace of the Chinese Navy. There is a great museum there with English subtitles to everything. The museum walks the visitor through a battle that the Chinese lost. It is a very interesting perspective. Worth an afternoon visit.

There are TWO anti-Japanese museums on the island. Go through them quickly then enjoy the rest of the island which is pretty much deserted.

The ferry trip over is short, the island very pleasant, the new museum good for a three hour visit. Walk around and enjoy the history.

Really good look at history from olden buildings to old exhibits. Be very prepared for a lot if walking. At one point I thought they can't possibly make anymore stairs. The island has a panda viewing area which was good.
