It is called Gulangyu Islet, used to be a colony of The Eight-Power Allied forces,like Shanghai Puxi, a print of that painful history. After PRC was founded, most colonial buildings were knocked down, but some were kept, Gulangyu Islet is one of them. Now, it has been developed to be one of the 76 5A tourism destinations in China.
