This is probably the most famous and well known of the tourist attractions in Weihai. It is situated 20 minutes by boat from the downtown area. On the island there is plenty to see. A short uphill walk takes you to the top of the hill where the old fort and cannons still stand. There is a great view of... More

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.

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.

Given I arrived on a Sunday afternoon I decided to visit Liugong Island. This involves taking a ferry for 20 mins at a cost of approx RMB138 return. The ferry can be packed with older local visitors how push and shove to get the best seats and vantage point. frustrating but normal so let them go first. The island is... More

Weihai, formerly Weihaiwei, now one of China's most beautiful coastal cities, was chosen as the home of China's modern navy during the latter part of the 19th Century. Naval facilities were constructed on Liugong Island adjacent to Weihai harbour. After China's defeat in the Sino-Japanese War it became a British possession. The British expanded the facilities when it became the... More

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.
