  • I write a review, because the former have a very different idea of the vemittelt, what there is to see there actually. First name. "Fishing Town" dates back to an ancient legend, after a giant on the high above the river the rocky plateau standing caught fish for the people and saved them from starvation. Rather, I (and also my 3 Mtreisenden) had thought it would be a small haunted place, a kind of deserted town with many ruins. This isn't "Fishing Town". First of all, you should know that you can find better under the term of "Diaoyucheng Fortress" "Fishing Town". A taxi driver takes you then for very little money (we have a fixed price of 20 RMB paid, what the taxi driver to the "customers of the day" did probably us but is of course always still ridiculously low compared to Western prices) to a parking lot set well to the leisure traveler. Probably you can get from Hechun also with bus number 201 there, exhausted, we didn't but. At the gate, you paid as a normal adult 80 RMB, which is very steep for Chinese conditions (for comparison: forbidden city in Beijing costs 40 RMB admission). It can be ordered in addition another bus ride for more 10 RMB, have we not found out what exactly does that. So walk a few hundred meters across flat terrain, then over many steep stairs uphill through ticket control and one of the many gates of the very well preserved or restored fortress walls. Within the walls there are many loosely clustered buildings, part Buddhist temples, part Museum, part bathroom cottage. Numerous stalls take over the food with everything needed for the sweaty guest, starving no one needs there. "Fishing Town" so a very extensive, very well maintained park-like grounds on a large plateau is interspersed with Buddhist places of worship. The cultural revolution is unfortunately not well get some of them; the "Cave of the 1000 Buddhas" was reduced to clear "1" unless it finds mention even remotely on the otherwise very informative information panels. You should allow several hours time. There are also ways completely free to enter, what I but expressly do not recommend and what will also only work if hired cashiers really sleep (which they usually do). Return led us through a little frequented gate over to snoring cashiers on longer routes to a further area, once the main entrance has been or is to be. Anyway, huge, with many newly built buildings, which were completely inanimate (as the other area also). We had fun anyway, and can recommend everyone visiting the Diayucheng fortress are walking. Definitely not for prams and people with walking difficulties.

  • Not so imagined yourself this is the place. It's a little like a fishing village rather destroyed the fortress, or fortified, but interesting.

  • When mongke Khan of the Mongol Empire Southern Song attacking the fortress siege during 没shimashita. Big in China size scale and let every detail missing in the day. Only noticeable if you're half as much in good will. Thus, there are a number of attractions, such as the reclining Buddha carved into the exhibition room, walls and gates, historic sites and ruins, Cliff Walk pretty sneaker?
