This has been an important military town since ancient times. In the tenth year during the period of Emperor Guang Xu of the Qing Dynasty, the Majing ruler Sea Warfare between China and France broke here. Mawei is only about 15 km away from Fuzhou city and traffic is very convenient. Visitors can travel there by bus. Climbing the Luoxing Tower, visitors may look far into where Minjiang River pours into the sea or visit the Zhao Zhong Ancestral Hall. Time permitting, they may also pay a visit to Luoxing Park.
Luoxing Park is situated in the Luoxing Mountain of Mawei district with an area of 2,033 ha. At the foot of the mountain, a revetment with railings has been built along the Mingjiang River. Many rockeries are piled up and lots of grass and trees have been planted. On the top of the mountain, the Luoxing Tower stands tall and upright. It was built in the Song Dynasty, damaged during the period of Emperor Wan Li of the Ming Dynasty and rebuilt during the period of Emperor Tian Qi of the Ming Dynasty (1621-1627). The seven-layer tower is octagonal and made of stone. It stands 31.5 m high at the Majiang River port. . It's necessary to mention that its name and location had been marked on the chart of Zheng He's navigation back to the Ming Dynasty. Since the five ports had trade relations in the late Qing Dynasty, Luoxing Tower has been regarded as the famous mark of the port in the world navigation chart, called "China Tower".
