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.

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.
