Only 6 Km to XiamenThe closest spot to Xiamen from Leiyu. Actually, your cell phone would automatically pick up Xiamen carrier signal instead because it’s so close. It’s not hard to picture which kind of hardship back then for those soldiers staying here. I have a much better picture to know way more about my friends who served military service here.
Average War MuseumHuJingtou is yet another war museum on Kinmen Island. Good history with many pictures and some signage in English. It's on the northwest part of the Island, about 15 minutes from Haifu Hotel main part of Island. Is free, like all Kinmen attractions. Worth a visit, but less impressive than 8-2-3 Artillery Battle Museum.
Excellent place to visit for ROC history!A walk through the civil defence tunnel is a must for you to know more about the history of the place!!
