Zhaishan Tunnel, Kinmen

(4.3/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Witness remnants of Taiwan's military history at Zhaishan Tunnel. Built to escape bombing from mainland China during the 1958-shelling of the island, the two-part 101 m (331 ft) long tunnel was the only way supplies could be transported to the defending island. Construction commenced in 1958 and was conducted 24 hours a day without skipping a day until its completion three years later. The fact that the tunnel is completely made of granite adds to the engineering masterpiece's impressive features. The water channel comfortably houses 42 small boats, thanks to its 357 m (1,171 ft) length and sits attached to the tunnel. It was abandoned in 1986 due to sediment deposition.

  •  Taiwan warships to conceal from the enemy (China) ship in excavated caves.  Enters the blooms and the entrance includes helmet, worn as it was written, so we said what I thought, came from Chinese tourists, who did not wear. Military facilities, but would sound good cave, exhibited at Orchestra concerts made classical music had been thrown.

  • 先人的毅力,造就鬼斧神工!每年十月有音樂祭,不需要高科技音響設備,卻有國家音樂廳的享受,值得來一起共享盛宴。 
  • 人工開鑿的坑道實在了不起,可體會國軍當年的艱辛與戰地情懷,進入坑道下樓梯後分兩側,一邊打光,一邊沒打光,欣賞不同感受,如果出海處沒有堤防圍著就好了。利用坑道的空間效果,每年都會舉辦一次坑道音樂會,實在很想參加。
