Zhaishan Tunnel, Kinmen
(4.3/5 based on 60+ 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.

  • 坑道超厲害的。尤其是坑道藝術節的音樂會很精采!沒想到可以容納那麼多人可以。聽到超酷的音樂! 沒想坑道也可以結合音樂! 這個一定要來探訪一下! 
  • 戰時產物,不知耗費多少人力及時間及物資所建成的坑道,令人嘆為觀止。很難想像當時戰爭下的人們過的多辛苦! 
  • 我是連續二年來到這個坑道,去年是參觀,今年是參加2016坑道音樂節來的~ 這個坑道的開鑿是因炮戰的年代,敵軍封鎖金門,為了運輸補給不被中斷,先人的智慧想出的偉大工程,將補給運輸船隊導入水域坑道內,既可防砲火轟擊,也是國兵命脈得以延續的水道坑洞~~ 當年犧牲了無數國軍英雄所開鑿的坑洞,時至今日,早已沒有戰時需求,但天然的ㄇ字型坑洞,造就絕佳的回聲音域環境,於是連續八年,金門都舉辦坑道音樂節的活動~~...  more »
