http://www.dongguantoday.com    9/25/2010 11:48:00 PM

Weiyuan Island, located in Humen Town, was one of the epic battlefields of the Opium War. It is, today, one of the best and largest well-preserved ancient battlefields of China. Heritage here is filled with antique warfare arms, especially the magnificent barbettes and cannons spread throughout the field. Standing in this battlefield, you can picture how the turbulent war times were.

Just beside Weiyuan Barbette, the Humen Bridge stands proud, crossing the mouth of Pearl River and connecting Humen and Panyu. It is one of China’s greatest modern constructions. The bridge structure, seen along with the Weiyuan Barbette Field forms a strong contrast and symbolizing the link between history and future.

It is a place you simply must visit!
