Mashan Observation Point can probably be skipped if you visited a few military sights in Kinmen. Like most observation points, it has a small tunnel system and a lookout facing towards mainland China.

These tunnels were very narrow and didn't really take you anywhere special. Also crowded, so you had to go in one direction or you ran into people and had to turn around. The only redeeming feature is that when you get to the end, you are very close to mainland China, which is only about 10 km across the water. So you can look across and see it (air quality and weather permitting).

Walking through the tunnels, you couldn't help but feel the tension that soldiers on patrol here must have felt during the times of crisis with the mainland. Be sure to go to the fortified observation bunker to watch maritime traffic sail by.

For a long time, this was as close as you were likely to get to Red China. Througth powerful binoculars, you could see people goingf about their daily business on the other side of the Taiwan Strait, only a kilometer or two away. I got a kick from seeing this sight, even though I've been to mainland China ten or more times. Powerful speakers also boadcast inducements for PLA (People's Liberation Army) solderis to go over to the Taiwan forces who occcupied Kinmen.

MaShan is at the closest point to mainland China. Through the large –sized binoculars, we can see the scenes across the sea if weather permit. It used to have powerful loud speakers for propaganda purpose. It would broadcast, “Mainlanders are (under) Deep Water and (facing) Hot Fire” or “Three Principles of People unify China”. Nevertheless, no more.

It was one of those deserted military facilities which used to be an observation point monitoring activities along the coast line of Xiamen, China.

A small quiet place for an non obstructive view of Xiamen from kinsman island.

For those who have seen pagodas in China/Taiwan, this one is a bit of a laugh as it's nothing special to look at. However, the views are great and there is almost no one there (at least in January), so it's a nice to place to seek peace and quiet.

Mashan observatory has tunnel to the underground observatory of the soldiers during the wartime. It is a good experience to actually go inside the tunnel to the observation area where you can view the China territory at the other side to the sea. If you are travelling alone, the entrance is hidden and you will not know that there is a tunnel to the observation post. I suggest to go inside but you might wait for someone else to go with you because inside the tunnel is creepy. Unless you are brave enough to go through. Its a good experience and see the tunnel design how it was constructed for survival during the war.
