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.

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,...More
