Every autumn, a series of amazing music concerts is held inside the tunnel. To hear Chinese and Western classical music with simply stunning acoustics, watch out for announcements about the Kinmen Tunnel Music Festival.

Some of the very few remaining military vessels are on display.

Out of the many tunnels in Kinmen, Zhaishan Tunnel is the most famous one!


Following the staircase down into Zhaishan Tunnel, you can't help but be in awe of this permanent testament to military engineering. Built to hide boats, construction started in 1961, and took 5 years to complete. An undeniably challenging task at the time! 
Zhaishan Tunnel
This huge tunnel can accommodate forty-two vessels. For security purposes, it's U-shaped with 2 entrances and exits.
Zhaishan Tunnel
On the grounds outside of the tunnel, various landing crafts and anti-aircraft weapon systems are on display. You can also walk on a path to the left of the entrance, leading to the coast and the two tunnel exits. Near the entrance, there are toilets and a small café offering coffees, ice creams and light snack-meals.

    Best visitor experience

    Having seen other wartime and historic sites and tunnels, I was dubious about yet another. But this is THE ONE to include if you're sightseeing. The island has an interesting history with two attempted takeovers by the mainland. These tunnels are huge and well worth a visit.

    Best to rent a scooter and just go there. So much history, just doesn't take much time to go through it all.

    Nothing to leave about this place. It was part of the A line guided bus tour and the last stop. If you are visiting on purpose and not part of the guided tour then it is definitely not worth the time.

    3 years of Hard Works

    The entrance were unassuming, with Tanks, anti-aircraft guns & war-boats. This is more a museum of military hideouts. For 3 years, tunnels were dig with flowing water whereby flat bottom boats could take cover from being detected by the enemy. This military base, not too big, could sit some 30 boats at a time. this blaster tunnels, of solid rocks & granites. The still water forms a superb reflection of the roofing that actually provide a grand art piece, as the water divides it forms a deep ravine of undulated flooring. So artistically crafted that our cameras just simply clicks away. Careful now, don't drop them into the water. The environment was a constant 20 degree, this afternoon with the outside temperature about 29 degree & the sun. Very comfortable, very impressive.

    Impressive to see this war tunnel! It was blasted from granite, inside the tunnel, it feels cool and damp! There are military vessels and other equipments on display outside the tunnel. Worth a visit if you a military buff!
