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. Also some lovely gardens as well. You can easily spend several hours here so be... More

Historical fortressI. With extensive expositions not only the fortification and weapons, but also the barracks etc. Can be connected with seaside tour. Quicktrip took us 3 hrs.

Hulishan Fort is beautiful seaside attraction that allows visitors a glimpse into the history of Xiamen Island. For only 24元 one can enjoy well tended gardens and view old artillery canons, or take a walk to the highest points to look out over the sea. A good way to spend several hours if your in the area.

Nicely managed and sculpted sight with many cannons include the giant Krupp canon. Great for history buffs. Nice views of the surrounding beaches and town from here.

Huli Hill Fort on the beach behind XMU, has long been considered the door of Xiamen. The Hulishan Cannon platform is divided into three parts, the battlement area, the barracks area, and the back mountain area. The structure is semi-blockhouse and semi- city wall, with a combination architecture style of both European and Ming and Qing Dynasties .

This is a good place to visit if your interested in History, otherwise not much to see for the price you pay to get in. If your taking a public bus, leave a bit of extra time the bad traffic made our journey a lot longer then expected. There is a surprising large amount of English around the area and... More

Hulishan Fort is a great place to visit with family, friends or visitors on business. The Fort is well preserved and provides for a good hour or so of entertainment. I would recommend a trip up to Nanputou then through the University and onto the Fort. That will pretty much cover all of the best locations in Xiamen. There is... More

The star of this fort are the two massive cannons used during the war against the Japanese. Otherwise, this place is a nice lookout point for the sea and beyond. If you're interested in the history of Xiamen and its fight against the Japanese before, then this is a nice place to see. Allot around an hour or two to... More

A little bit overpriced. Like my title, it's basically a big cannon (biggest in China) facing Taiwan. No harm to visit if you have plenty of time.
