Guidelines for carrying folding bikes on the bus:
Located at at Hou Village, Jinshan Town at Kinmen, Shishan (Mt. Lion) Howitzer Front is a rare underground Howitzer fort in Taiwan. The 8-inch Howitzers were made in the USA, which functioned incredibly well during the 823 Battle, turning the tide of the war.
Shishan (Mt. Lion) Howitzer Fort was once an important defense line. Now, it is refurbished to become a resort, displaying 75 mm Howitzers, 155 Howitzers, and 8-inch Howitzers. The front is presented to visitors in a whole new appearance, displaying the rare Howitzer accessories and Howitzer shows. Highly recommended.
Mt. Lion Howitzer Fort is located at the peak at the northeast of Kinmen—Wuhu Mountain (including Zhaizi Mountain, Meijen Mountain, Lion Mountain, Mianqian Mountain, and Huluo Mountain), at the altitude of 103m. Being the north entrance of Meiren Mountain, it has a rough geographic position, with tough and hidden architecture, facilitating cross-knit fire for the troops. Therefore, it could control the sea in north Kinmen effectively with high strategic value. It can block the entire beach and control the whole of Dongge Bay.
[The cannon show is highly recommend for all visitors]

With the layout of eight streets, eight lanes, and eight alleys, it is also called as the “Eight Trigrams Street.”
