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.
