I visited the fortress in Feb. 2014. The fortress is located quite a ways outside of the city so my dad and I rented a car and driver for the day. We visited the fortress in the morning and pretty much had the place to ourselves even though it was during a public holiday. Around noon there were the normal crowds of people. You can walk around the fortress for free or buy a 20 kuai ticket that allows you access to a couple of different museums. I am really glad we bought the the tickets. The museums helped give a better idea of the history of the fortress. There are lots of small restaurants and shops to buy food and souvenirs. This one of the few places where you can see the history of Shenzhen and how it used to be. I am hoping to go back sometime and explore the peninsula more including the temple and other sites that are in that area.
