I have twice been to this university and each time I have been amazed by the beautiful gardens. People often walk through the grounds just to feel the serene surroundings.

It is a good place to enjoy the sunset if the weather is great. The backyard of the school is huge but winding. You can see beautiful view with ocean and ships along the winding road. There are a lot of monkeys around sometimes. So be careful to your food in plastic bag and don't feed them!

I agree with the other reviewers. It's great for the sunset and walking around campus. Watch out for stray dogs on the hill.

Nothing very special need a pay a special tour to visit. The scenic surrounding the university is beautiful. Also here is very quiet.

I went to this university! I was always very proud of the magnificent landscape!!! Come here for an ocean breeze, or to enjoy the sunset! Anticipate the crowds though. Despite that, the place is pretty nice to stroll around, jog, sight-seeing and picture taking. Also, don't miss walking through the historic tunnel that's adorned with creative graffiti! Do visit the... More

We went as three families with kids near sunset time. The kids were having great fun at the beach, and we were fascinated by the beautiful sunset. It's definitely great for repeat visits.

There is a long tunnel leading to this university from Shaochuan Jie. Rather unique. Another way to get to the university is to travel along Shaochuan Jie all the way to the Takao British Consulate, and then up a slope where you will get a beautiful view of the sea and the hill. This university is well located away from... More

There is definitely something to be said about a college campus boasting beachfront property. I entered the campus through the mountain tunnel - quite dramatic. Some of the buildings are newer than others - the older ones could use some TLC. There was a nice park and garden adjacent to Sun Yat-sen's former residence (now a small art gallery/museum). The...
