Tourist: This is a great place for its beautiful surroundings and fresh air.
Tour guide: Yes. If you breathe deeply, you can enjoy the smell of the forest that makes you feel relaxed and carefree. And besides natural beauty, you can also enjoy experiencing the best of military life here.
Tourist: How is that?
Tour Guide: In the memorial forest, you can see the planes and tanks of the wartime. And another military site to experience is right at the "Old Rushan Fort." Here there is an old military campsite where soldiers lived. Nowadays, Kinmen is no longer considered a battle front, so military personnel reduction is underway. A short time ago this base was transferred to the National Park Administration for renovation,(5) and was reopened to tourists as an original feature.
Tourist: We can only see the military campsite without experiencing the military training and combat. Too bad, isn't it?
Tour Guide: No. After the National Park Administration had taken over and renovated this place, it made many wax figures that portray the soldiers of old who were stationed here and defended this place. Therefore, the Old Rushan Fort actually simulates military combat as well.
Tourist: How diversified the park really is！
Tour Guide: And besides that, there are Chiang Jing-guo Memorial Hall and two tourist centers inside the forest, which you can take your time to visit.
