Zhaishan Tunnel, Kinmen

(4.4/5 based on 75+ 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.

  • 雖然公車班次少,但最好自行前往,不要跟金門A線觀光巴士遊覽,因為逗留的時間可自行控制。坑道內可容納多艘戰艇,戰艇的實體在坑道外的空地展出。  more »
  • 翟山坑道絕對是到金門必看的景點,具體呈現當初戰地的特殊性與金門本地因為成為要塞的關係如何進行特殊運補的相關可能性。 景點規劃也十分方便,整個來說不需要話太多時間就可以體驗。十分推薦。  more »
  • 藍綠色的水倒映著山壁非常美麗,也因為看不見底,和戰爭的聯想心生恐懼。建議進來要戴頭盔,路窄容易撞到山壁。目前還不用門票,不知道什麼時候會開始收費。  more »
