The Hulishan Fortress is one of the children’s favorite places. The transportation is convenient. The lush trees on the mountain will let you feel very cool. Walking along the steps, you can see the introduction of the Krupp cannon and the fort. The scenic spot is not particularly large, and there are many of the cannons left in the past, as well as the performance of the artillery, to let the children know how the cannons of the past were launched.
