The ninth fortress is a haunting place to visit, although we have seen a number of concentration camps or prisons previously. There is a unique exhibition in each and every cell. For us, the most memorable one is the story of the brave Japanese diplomat,...More

You must visit and pay respect to this Fort and the thousands of victims who were murdered here. There is a moving set of statues. Never forget the lessons of history.

Exhibit fairly easy to follow in English. Very standard way of presenting. Not much of a surprise. Might not be so straight forward by bus. As suggested by above, try to do a screen grab of surrounding.

Very informative and organised. Most, if not all, of the exhibits had English translation which we really appreciated (we'd visited a number of places with minimal English translations and no guided tours available). The defensive wall section can only be visited with a guide so...More

There was no cafe when we went last year. Take a couple of snacks and some water with you. You could easily spend anywhere between 3-5 hours there.
