Lan Tan (Lake in Chiayi) built by the Dutch?

My gf’s brother told me that Lan Tan was built by the Dutch? Anyone know if this is true.

If so, it must have taken a hell of a lot of workers (Slaves) to build it.

Anyone know the history?

Gorgeous place

God made the world, but the Dutch made Lan Tan? Never heard of that one.

It would have been interesting to have been here when the Dutch were here (Geographically speaking). Taipei was underwater I believe.

I saw an animated video at Taipei City Hall a few years back showing what happened. Apparantly Taipei is a lake basin and there was a big earthquake which drained it.

Sun Moon Lake folktale.

Great story :slight_smile:
