Great place to learn some military history and about foreign presence in the area. It is much more visitor friendly than the first time I went.

A short trip by boat across to the island reveals a beautifully maintained area. There is a museum devoted to the history of the Japanese invasion, several shops and a cable car to the top of the island. Honestly, though, just walking around the peaceful area was pleasant enough by itself. There is a heavy Naval presence on the island,... More

Just to avoid possible misunderstandings I will start my review by making clear it is gonna be written according to my point of view, which is the angle of a Western guy. With that being said I frankly think a day trip to Liugong Island is more appealing for locals rather than for Westerners. To be honest my day trip... More

I went twice and enjoyed it both times, but much more the first time when it wasn't so crowded.The second time was on a holiday and there were so many people. We got the tickets through a travel agency and that was also a hassle because we had been promised a certain price and they were trying to charge us... More

liugong island was the navy base in Qing dynasty. there was a war between China and Japan. There is no doubt that Japan won because of the corruption of qing government. I just felt a bit sad about the men died in that war

Paid 350Yuan each for the trip; six hours on the bus each way, one night in a basic hotel, two lunches, and entrance tickets to temples, ferry to island, boat trip around the island and museums. It's an early start and then 'quickly, quickly' all the time but that's... More

We loved Weihai, and enjoyed the boat trip to the island even though it took over an hour queuing as it was the national holiday. After you get there there is the Sino Japanese war museum which is very interesting. Note the fact at the end they have the new enlarged map of China which now includes the South China... More

You do a lot of walking, but a good idea is to walk up the mountain and take the cable car down so you can get a birds eye view of the island. Then when you get down you have to feed the bottle drinking fish! There are also deer and pandas to see, a lovely way to have a... More

My son and I had been travelling around China by Railway, Bus and Domestic Flights. We decided to visit Luigong island by taking the overnight a ferry from Dalain. The ferry tickets may be purchased at Dalian Railway Station (near the south exit) where there is a small ferry office, or at the Dalain Cruise Port. It is probably safer... More
