Three Heroic Islands Battlefield Sightseeing Park is located at the southeast end of the beautiful Dadeng Island in Xiamen, Fujian province and covers an area of over 80,000 square meters.
During the famous artillery battle that started on August 23, 1958, the venue was severely bombarded, receiving an average 1.5 shells per square meter of land and becoming war ruins.
After extensive renovation, the frontier battlefield of the old days now has taken a vibrant new look.

It is the only multi-functional tourist resort facing Kinmen Island that is themed around national reunification and that features battlefield sightseeing, patriotism education, national defense knowledge education, and military science education.
