This is Shawn, I’m doing my alternative military service on Běigān Island. Actually, this place is out of Taiwan island. The Matsu Archipelago was named for the deep faith in Mazu, the Goddess of the Sea, that characterise the island. The group is basically made of 4 main islands, Dongyin Island, Běigān Island, Jǔguāng Island, and Nángān Island.
Right now I’m going to introduce some of Beigan Island famous tourist place to visit.
Běigān Beihai Tunnel
Beihai Tunnel is a water channel crossing in a shape. The total length of the walkway is 550m and it takes approximately 20 mins to finish one round trip. The tunnel was made entirely by manual excavation of the granite, and during its construction hundreds of soldiers sacrificed their lives and the tunnel was completed around 3 years time working days. The difficulty of construction and grand sight for the tunnel shows it to be an incomparable piece of work with extremely fine craftsmanship. At present, the tunnel is open for public viewing, but during the daytime which the tides must be taken into consideration when scheduling visits.
Qinbi Village, which early on was comprehensive restored in the traditional style, is one of the traditional style, is one of the most popular tourist on Beigan. The village is built on a steep mountainside faceting the sea; it contains a “Pirate House”, as well as an enchantingly romantic Aegean Atmosphere.
The Fun Bird of Watching
The almost mythical Chinese crested tern was seen here in 2000, 2004 and 2005. This bird is listed as threatened species, in the same class as the black-faced spoonbill; but its numbers are even smaller, with fewer than 100 left in the world! Even more importantly, the world-making Matsu a focus of attention for international conservationists and media. To keep the habitat of tern undisturbed, human beings are banned from landing on islands in the sanctuary or entering its core area all year round. Around July and August each year, during the nesting period visitors are allowed to approach on boats to within 100 meters of the low- tide lin ti enjoy the beautiful sight of the birds soaring about.
