Doumen Off The Beaten Path

    The fort was built in 1809 during the Qing dynasty. Most of the current cannons in place are replicas but you can still find several of the original cannons scattered on the grounds inside the fort as well as alongside the river bank outside the fort.

    Fancy a lager after touring the fort? Doumen is also the site of a joint venture with Princess Brewery producing Australia's Foster's beer for the China market.

    FIRE!!

    Doumen is truly far off the beaten path, even for domestic Chinese tourists. You will most likely be the only visitor at any given time inside the fort. It's neat to have the entire fort to yourself and imagine you are waiting for enemy ships to pass by.
    Doumen can be done as a day trip from Zhuhai or even Macau. You can see the fort from the river if you take a ferry to Xinhui or beyond.
