We walked to the Fort from the Lighthouse via a short-cut as there were situated side by side. As it was early in the morning, there wasn't much tourist, i find it a bit creepy to walk on the stone path to the fort.The fort...More
Cihou Fort and the Cihou Lighthouse are the two popular attractions on the western end of Cijin along with the beach. The unmanned fort, despite not looking flashy as most European influenced forts, is very photogenic especially near dusk. Views of Cijin and Kaohsiung skyline...More

From this fort, you will be able to see the entire stretch of Cijin beach as well as the sea. It is definitely a great place for photo taking. We came here after the lighthouse and then we proceed down to the Cijin Star Tunnel...More
