    Only 6 Km to Xiamen

    The 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.

    HuJingtou 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.

    戰史館不大,所記錄的戰爭在大陸教科書裏介紹很少,對歷史和軍事感興趣的人建議來這裏看看。戰史館外有個小賣部,可以買冷飲吃,旁邊有個宣傳墻,戰地特色的宣傳畫被粉刷壹新,標語口號和繪畫內容都很有金門特色。來這裏的最好方式是騎摩托車或自行車。

    湖井頭在戰爭時期是一種精神喊話,面對著對岸的共匪心戰喊話,還有就是用空氣球綁著傳單,隨著風飄移動到大陸,這是湖井頭當時的任務,而現在是一個給人回意的地方,
