It would be interesting for those, who like old cannons. For all others there would be nothing special - a bit of history, statues, cannons. The fortress was build a hundred years ago, so it does not look old. The entrance fee is 25 yuan....More

Ironic that the very week I visited a fort used to defend (and retaliate) against its nearby enemy at the time (Taiwan -- only 300 km off the coast of Xiamen), a Chinese warship got within striking distance of Taiwan and made them a bit...More

Xiamen Hulishan Fortress was a fascinating visit for me and well worth you checking out. Located at the very southern end of Xiamen Island and has (naturally) some excellent views of the surrounding waterways. Great preservation of the original fort features including cannon, guns, structures....More

The port on the island is facing the mainland. I suppose the cruise ship terminal is also there (Donggang Rd.), then it is about 10km to the Hulishan Fort. May take up to 30 minutes depending on the traffic (by taxi).
