The Xiluo Bridge
Aug 2019
The bridge is the most well-known landmark of Xiluo in Taiwan. In former days, Xiluo was a major hub of Zhuo Shui River for transportation and the bridge was essential. The construction started in 1937 when Taiwan was still a Japanese colony but when Japan took part of WWII in 1941, the government focus on their war effort and the construction was eventually suspended. Postwar, the construction started again and was finished in 1952. When it was completed, it was the longest bridge in the Far East and second to the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco. If you go visit the bridge on the late afternoon, you will also be able to see some kites flying and a market where you can enjoy coffee and other specialties.
這座橋是台灣西螺最著名的地標。 過去,西螺是濁水溪交通的主要樞紐,橋樑至關重要。 建設始於1937年,當時台灣仍然是日本的殖民地,但是當日本在1941年參加第二次世界大戰時,政府專注於他們的戰爭努力,建築最終被暫停。 戰後,建築再次開始,於1952年完工。建成後,它是遠東地區最長的橋樑,舊金山金門大橋的第二座橋樑。 如果您在下午晚些時候去參觀大橋,您還可以看到一些風箏和市場,您可以在那裡享用咖啡和其他特色菜。
