  • Impressive building with great views on the sea. The entrance fee is only 8.5rmb, and it's really worth it to get in and walk around. If you'd have to decide, this or the Princess House, pick this one!
  • Very beautiful building. Very affordable entrance fee. Recommended for a visit.
  • Interesting architecture with a great view of the ocean if it's a clear enough day.
  • People's Republic of China around some wedding photographers came to take the Chinese couples this is a pretty good place to think of scenery. Here, too, many couples wedding came out to take a picture. European-style building, facing the sea, with a beautiful landscape is the place to stay. Jiang writes about them I can see from the response inside the building.
