Great Views and Big Cannon
Jul 2021 • Couples
The fort is worth making a trip to either for the spectacular ocean views, the history and/or the giant cannon. Plan to spend about an hour or two here and make sure you check out everything as there are is good signs and posters but some of the interesting facts are a little hidden. You can get very close to the large cannon and even check out the ammunition that it use to blast off into the sea.

Price to enter for adults is 25 yuan and they have a show at 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.

The bathrooms are clean and are a great place to change before heading down to the nearby Baicheng Beach!

Fort with Views
Oct 2019 • Business
The fort was accessible via a nearby parking lot or a short walk from the beach closest to Xiamen University. The fort itself was in decent shape with evidence of recent renovations mostly along the sea wall.

The views from the top of the fort were quite nice with expansive views of the sea and distant islands. Various fort buildings had interesting exhibits.

One of the main attractions was the massive Krupp canon that was installed during the Qing Dynasty and used to protect the China coastline. There were also a lot more examples of military hardware and ammunition scattered throughout the fort.

Hulishan Fortress (Fort)
May 2019 • Friends
Inexpensive way to see the fort that was built to defend Xiamen and used when the Japanese Empire attacked China. Not fully restored but certainly alot of restoration has been done and the view over the harbor and city is spectacular. .

Educational but not well maintained
May 2019 • Couples
The place used to be a fort that overlook the waterway formed by Xiamen and mainland China. It was used during the Qing dynasty to prevent aggressors from landing into mainland. It is now maintained as a heritage site for visitors to view the canons used and explore the layout of the fort. What’s disappointing was the lack of maintenance of the artefacts. It also didn’t help that there were hordes of local tourists who do not seemed to be able to respect the artefacts and allowing their children to climb and jump of them, even when there are clear signages that advise visitors against doing so. And the experience was marred by the noise created by loud speaking (screaming) locals.

Well preserved and interesting history
May 2019
The tickets are fairly inexpensive. The fort is quite big with different areas to view. The ocean views and the construction and cannons are all interesting for 1-1.5 hours to look around.

History of a fortress
May 2019 • Friends
Really enjoyed the time spent at the fortress. Went there with friends, it was crowded but we were able to see the performance and it was interesting. Saw a lot of canons and really huge one. A lot of information in English, so you can actually find out something new

Interesting fort with a unique canon
Apr 2019 • Couples
Enjoyed my walk around this fort and looking at the large canon on display. Even more interesting was the Hexagonal canon - never seen one before.

Interesting history
Nov 2018 • Business
The fort is well preserved and has an interesting series of historical rooms/ documentation. Several cannons including one great big gun. Good for a 90 minute visit, lots of fun for kids.

Interesting look on colonial history
Aug 2018 • Friends
Most people come to this fortress to look at the huge impressive German manufactured canon and other armoury. We found the history behind the fortress most interesting. While most history in China is based in ancient times, this fortress tells its story of pre and post colonial times, opium wars and the small part it played in shaping this region of modern China. Take the time to read some of the plaques to get a better understanding.
