Kinmen–Lieyu Township tour(2)

Welcome to TAIWAN, I am Poyu Lin
I love to travel ,love wandering around in Taiwan
This is a Wind Rooster, I going to the hometown of Wind Roosters ,Lieyu.
The Kinmen schedule with the Taiwan Tour bus isn’t just a bus ride you get to jump on a ferry to visit Lieyu township. A lot of military residue has been left here and have become tourist attractions.
Only a few minutes walk from the Jiugong Pier is where I am now, the Jiugong Tunnel. This tunnel is 790 meter long and the view is spectacular!
This tunnel was originally built in 1963 to protect previous cargo being damaged by the bombings. To build this tunnel they had to drill through hard granite so a small carrier could pass through. In 1998 the Kinmen National Park made renovations to the tunnels and has been open to the public since 2001.
A helmet is required for visiting this tunnel because there might be some falling rocks. You also need to check the tide so that when you come visit it is not buried under the water.
There are a lot of different options for transportation while visiting Lieyu, include my favorite bicycle.
This 18.3km long roundabout cycle route was a frontier command back in the war years.
The Lieyu Huan Dao Path passes through a lot of greens and great township sceneries, a comfortable relaxing route.
There are lots of military remains such as bunkers, military defense structures, and military banners. Around midway you should stop and explore one of the bunkers.
So exciting! Running through this mine stimulations feels like you are in the war.
Brave Fortress and the Tie Han Fortress built in 1971 were shoulder to shoulder in protecting the North coast of Lieyu. The Kinmen Township government renovated these fortresses and turned them into the Mine Stimulation Area. Previously this was an area full of confusing tunnels and military equipment.
Other than Military debris, the view of the coast is also very special; the Mao Gong Shi Island Recreation Area for example, would make your jaw drop.
These stones are wired shaped,so special.
Yes,it’s called Mao Gong stone. See all the pockets right, those are the wash away , the dirts red clay from the sediment overtime by the high tides and low tides. The remaining part are a metal composite which include iron, aluminum, calcium and silicones. So the pockets are the wash away and a big piece of metal remained.
Come here for a trip. If you stroll around the village, you will find different styles of wind roosters which are the locals’belief people harness to suppress strong winds and pray for safety.
This 300 hundred years old well was dug when Zheng Cheng Gong just arrived here with his army. Today you can still well water from here.
When I see Historical Site that are over 100 years old. My time in history has just moved way back.
Lieyu is a fantastic island and a well kept secret place in Taiwan. You must come when you have time. I am Poyu Lin, enjoy your time in Taiwan! Chow~see you next time.
 
烈嶼鄉趴趴走(金門)

歡迎來到台灣,我是林柏妤
我熱愛旅行,也喜歡在台灣趴趴走
這是風雞,我要去風雞的故鄉,列嶼
參加台灣觀巴金門的行程,不僅只有搭著車,還會帶你去坐船,到烈嶼鄉走走,因為它特殊的地理位置,留下大量的軍事防禦設備,成為必遊的觀光景點。
從九宮碼頭走個幾分鐘,就是我現在所在的地點,九宮坑道,這個坑道總長790公尺,有著非常壯麗的景色
開挖於1963年的九宮坑道,當年是為了避免補給船隻在裝卸貨物過程遭受敵軍炮火,因此在堅硬的花崗岩下開挖出這條「小艇坑道」,直到1998年移交金門國家公園規劃整理,在2001年對外開放
參觀坑道戴著安全帽,是為了防範可能有落石,來這參觀還需注意潮汐時間,因為漲潮時會淹沒坑道,免得白跑一趟。
有很多樣的方式在烈嶼旅行,還包含我最擅長的自行車
全長18.3公里的環島自行車道,是過去的戰備道路
這條烈嶼環島自行車道,沿途景色綠意盎然,騎起來感覺還滿舒服的。
此外 沿途還有許多戰地遺跡,像是碉堡 軍事防禦工事,以及精神標語等等,中途也可以選擇停下來,到碉堡內探險。
好刺激,穿過這地雷體驗區,讓人好像回到戰爭的感覺。
勇士堡及鐵漢堡,建於1971年的,過去肩負烈嶼北方海上防禦,經過金門縣政府轉化再利用,成為如今地雷主題園區,進而把過去的戰地歷史,重現在旅客眼前
除了看軍事遺跡外,烈嶼的地質景觀也相當特別,像是貓公石濱海休憩區,就會讓你大呼驚奇
這些石頭的形狀,長得好奇特
是的,這個叫作「貓公石」 妳看這些坑坑洞洞,是長時間的受到沖刷,原本是有紅土包覆著,當中的紅土被潮汐沖走後,留下來的只剩複合金屬塊,這之中包含了,鐵、鋁、鈣、矽、這個就是貓公石形成的原因
來這邊旅行,如果往村莊裡逛,你還會看到不同造型的風雞,祂是烈嶼特有的民間信仰,用於陣風煞,保平安用。
這口井在300年前就有了,是當年鄭成功帶著軍隊,剛到這裡時所挖的,現在井裡面還能打水
當我看見超過百年以上的古蹟,讓在此的時光旅行回到了更久遠的年代
烈嶼是個令人感到夢幻的島嶼,宛若世外桃源一般,有機會你也可以來逛逛,我是林柏妤,享受在台灣的時光,我們下次見!
