Jiguan & Wangtai Fortresses - East Crest Hill
Jul 2015
My son and I visited East Crest Hill as part of a day trip from Dalian. The fort site is 20 minutes drive from the bus station. the taxis in front of the bus station seem to be the most expensive, and do not want to use a meter. It may be easier to hail a taxi that passes by. The entrance fee is 40 yuan, which gives access to the 2 areas within the scenic area where the main guns were. The best way to visit is to get a taxi to wait at both sites and carry you back into town. It will be very difficult to get a taxi or bus back into town from this site. To the right of the ticket gate (down hill) is the museum exhibit and main fort. The museum exhibit is on the left path downstairs (under the green matted area), and has a history of the battle for the fort and weapons that were used. The other paths lead to the fort and the memorial stone for the soldiers that died defending the fort. There are photo ops of machine gun and cannon positions on the walk through the fort. It would be good to follow the brick path around the exterior of the fort to see the scars which remain from gun and cannon fire. At the back of the fort is a small sign that shows where the Japanese were able to gain entry to the fort. There are also many trenches that were dug by the Russians in this area. The second road (to the left of the ticket office) may be visited next, and is known as Wengtai Fort. Drive/walk until a car park is reached, and climb the steps to the top of the hill. There are two huge cannons mounted to protect the fort and a memorial stone. the entire visit to both sites could be done in less than 2 hours if a taxi drives you between both locations.This was a good site to visit, and would be beneficial if the Sino-Japanese Museumin Weihai (Luigong Island) was part of your tour.
