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.

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. .

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.

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.
