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!
