Attraction details
Reviewed August 24, 2011

Located in the Chiwan area of the modern China city of Shenzhen. Built during the Qing Dynasty, the fort was used to protect the Pearl River from the British during the Opium War. This fort is also known as the "Left Fort". the right fort is long demolished. Not a whole lot left to see at this site. It sits upon a hill overlooking modern day container ships. There is an old cannon to look at along with glassed in remains of the old fort. A nice statue of Lin Zexu exists. He was in charge at one point in trying to curb the opium trade. It rained the day i went and the insects were eating us up. A few picnic tables were available. On a dry,clear day the views must be lovely. The fort is Free, parking available. soon the new metro system will have a stop walking distance away. Nothing great, but I enjoyed a little bit of history in the fast growing city of Shenzhen.
