Meishi is in the core area of Nangan in Lienchiang County. In 1949, when the ROC Army was first stationed on the islands, a cultural and recreational center was set up in Meishi, and the area developed into a recreational area for both the military and civilians. After the end of military operations in the area in 1992, the site was renovated, preserved, and revitalized, injecting new life into this old space.
