Buses 1 & 32 both pass by Xiuying Battery. Hop off the bus at Shimao Wan Lu and walk right up the hill a ways.  Xiuying Battery is on the right.  The battery was constructed in 1891 during the Qing Dynasty to defend against a French invasion. The small park still displays a few large cannons, some of the battery's original walls, and even includes underground tunnels that you can crawl around in.  A small museum displays pictures of the Japanese occupation and beyond.  (NOT OPEN FOR PUBLIC NOW)
