Nicely managed and sculpted sight with many cannons include the giant Krupp canon. Great for history buffs. Nice views of the surrounding beaches and town from here.

Huli Hill Fort on the beach behind XMU, has long been considered the door of Xiamen. The Hulishan Cannon platform is divided into three parts, the battlement area, the barracks area, and the back mountain area. The structure is semi-blockhouse and semi- city wall, with a combination architecture style of both European and Ming and Qing Dynasties .

This is a good place to visit if your interested in History, otherwise not much to see for the price you pay to get in. If your taking a public bus, leave a bit of extra time the bad traffic made our journey a lot longer then expected. There is a surprising large amount of English around the area and... More

Hulishan Fort is a great place to visit with family, friends or visitors on business. The Fort is well preserved and provides for a good hour or so of entertainment. I would recommend a trip up to Nanputou then through the University and onto the Fort. That will pretty much cover all of the best locations in Xiamen. There is... More

The star of this fort are the two massive cannons used during the war against the Japanese. Otherwise, this place is a nice lookout point for the sea and beyond. If you're interested in the history of Xiamen and its fight against the Japanese before, then this is a nice place to see. Allot around an hour or two to... More

A little bit overpriced. Like my title, it's basically a big cannon (biggest in China) facing Taiwan. No harm to visit if you have plenty of time.

Old fort with a bunch of cannons. Reasonable signage in English with properly edited English. Children will enjoy the cannons and walking around the fort. While you do have to have a lot of interest in history to really make this place worth it, if you're in the area it's worth at least stopping in.

It's a small fort featuring canons from the old days. Can spend a quick 30 minutes here if you are interested with canons or the history.
