Takes about 10-15 minutes drive from the Opium Museum site to this Fort along this Pearl river estuary in Weiyuan island. It was destroyed in 1841, repaired in 1843, destroyed again in 1856 and repaired again in 1878. All you see is stone covered emplacements, barracks, canons, concrete paths and defense wall.

This Fort dated back to 1835 and many of the canons are fake with only 2-3 original left there that you can easily identify. Entrance is free and it closes at 5.30pm.

Worth a visit since is so close by the Opium Museum site. Probably about 1 hour with photography would be sufficient which there is also another museum hall about 15 minutes walk away..

SWMBO and I combined a visit to the fort with a second visit to the excellent Humen Naval Museum (TA reviewed). As usual SWMBO packed her bag to deal with floods, pestilence, and famine. I just packed my Pentax K70 camera for outdoor photos and Samsung phone for indoor photos as it’s better for low light photos.

We left our humble dwelling at 9:30 as we were determined to make a whole day of the trip. We took a taxi to the GuangDong Passenger Transport Terminal in other words the main bus station which is about a kilometre west of GuanhZhou’s Main Railway station. The place was heaving but after a 15 minutes of queuing SWMBO got us bus tickets to HuMen Bus Terminal Station, they cost ¥55 each.

Unfortunately, the coach didn’t leave until 11:20 and this was the first bus of the day, so we had to wait just over an hour. Luckily, we found seats and bided our time.

Note: to get an inter-city coach ticket you will always need your passport and these days your mobile phone for contact tracing. Having a Chinese sim-card isn’t obligatory but stops a lot of problems.

The journey to Humen took a shade over an hour. From our previous trips HuMen Bus Station isn’t the most welcoming of places but we were spared that as the security people told SWMBO that for local buses it was closed but we could catch a bus from across the road. Could we catch a No. 16 bus? No, that’s been cancelled and replaced by No. 238 the ever helpful security chap informed SWMBO. Across the road there was a bus stop but not for the No. 238! We were walking away when lo and behold a No. 238 appeared and stopped. We trotted back and climbed aboard.

Note: GuangZhou travel cards aren’t accepted in HuMen which is a part of DongGuan.

SWMBO confirmed with the driver that he was going to ‘HaiZhan BoWu Guan’ in other words Navel Battle Museum (which is the terminus for both the museum and fort) he was so SWMBO dropped a couple of Yuan into the box and off we went. On hearing SWMBO wasn’t local the driver and passenger wanted to know where, and then wanted to hear what life was like in GuangZhou.

After 30 minutes we were at HaiZhan BoWu Guan bus terminal, and it’s only a couple of hundred metres to the park’s entrance, then about a kilometre to the fort.

Getting into the park was a nightmare! I’ve no idea if the security chaps would even let in a foreigner in id they weren’t with a Chinese person with an id-Card as they’ve got their own phone app that only works for Chinese id-cards. We both scanned their QR code and showed it to the security, he wasn’t satisfied but wasn’t to sure what to do next except point to a board of instructions. SWMBO did as instructed and still the chap seemed baffled, even his colleague was baffled, and even all the people off a coach were baffled. After much head scratching the security just waved us in, SWMBO was told to just keep me close to her. There’s no charge to enter the park, fort or Naval Museum.

Note: I looked at the information board, only 2000 people at a time were allowed in the park. A good idea in these social distancing times, but they were counting people in but not counting people leaving!

The fort’s a good 10-minute walk from the gate along the promanade. Then there was even more checks and interrogation. A foreigner? How’s he got in here? Anyway, we got eventually got in.

Now SWMBO tells me she’s not keen on the place as there’s bound to be ghosts of the soldiers killed at the fort, especially when the British destroyed the fort in 1856. I told her there was nobody killed as they’d all run-off when they saw the Brits coming! Satisfied she followed me in.

As an aside, in the Naval Museum she found out that about 500 Chinese soldiers were killed in that skirmish.

There are a few signs in English about the fort but nothing about the part of the fort still standing. There’s lots of it, but what are all the little niches and doorways for? Did they lead to the powder and shot stores? I think the barracks were behind, and from looking at the brickwork I sure there was a roof over the place. Nevertheless, a fascinating place to wander around. There are a few cannons in place, one or two on modern carriages, but a pity there’s no bits of ephemera lying around to give an idea of what it must have been like for the troops stationed there.

It took as a good hour to walk around the fort and up onto the later part of the fort where there are gun emplacements. By the looks of them for breech rather than muzzle loaders, and able to traverse about 90 degrees, so no need for so many guns. Once again, no information but good views of the HuMen bridge and river facing part of the fort.

Then it was down the steps to the exit and out into the park to stroll 500 metres via the clean toilets to the Naval Museum.

Weiyuan Fort is a coastal-defense fort situated under the Humen Bridge, now in ruins in Humen, Dongguan. From entrance to exit, the whole area is well maintained and clean.

A very interesting fort on the Pearl River Delta showing the importance of protecting the shipping lanes. A move is underway to preserve and restore the fort!

這裡真的很不錯,免費入場。(中國人才行)
有好多好多的歷史遺跡,走個一圈就完了
好深深的感受到戰爭時侯的歷史痕跡
重伸,進去以前有一個衛生間
須真的好差,只是一個公開的坑讓人上廁所
而且還是非常非常的臭

要上衛生間的話,還是能忍就忍吧

The trip to this attraction was treacherous. Roads leading were like a mine field. Once we made it the are was littered with garbage and old amusement park and cheap souvenir stalls. to make things worse the hot weather makes this place almost unbearable. It is interesting but not worth the detour. Half the area is closed off to public due to military base on one part of the site.

Remains of Weiyuan Fort are historical as these were used by the Chinese against the invading British naval ships during the Opium War. Beautiful views of Humen Bridge can be seen from here.
