Have a picture taken with the bullet hole wall and imagine the thrill of the battlefield.

The building is now a hostel that celebrates diversity.

Iconic Building of Battle of Guningtou


Beishan Old Western-style house was established in 1928 by three brothers: Li Jinyu, Li Yanya, and Li Tianzu, from Guningtou. After running a successful coconut export business in Manila, the Philippines, the Li brothers returned to their hometown in Beishan to build the western-style grand house with two courtyards and annexes.
Situated at a higher strategic position, the house has great views and overlooks the entire village. During the Battle of Guningtou, it was occupied by the communist troops and became a command post. After going through a series of fierce shootouts and bombings, it is unquestionably proof of Kinmen’s past as a battle frontier.
Nowadays you can still see the collapsed rooftops and numerous bullet holes; yet, these do not affect the exquisiteness of the western-style building. The inside of the building has now been transformed into a hostel, providing tourists with comfortable accommodation. The traces of the ruthless wars on the building will make you feel as if you could still hear the sound of bombs exploding.
