The Longteng Broken Bridge

Join MJ as he gives us an excellent view of the Longteng Broken Bridge 龍騰斷橋, in Sanyi Township, Miaoli County. In this episode, we walk up the steps to the top of the bridge approach, and do a walk-around the ruins.

Glad to see you in my old neighborhood (I used to live about 30-40 minutes by scooter from the bridge). Disaster tourism has really left its mark – my wife first took me to see the bridge back in 2000, when we first started dating. At that time, there was nothing to see but the ruins themselves – no parking lots, no food stalls, no skybridges, no fees and, best of all, no visitors (other than ourselves). Hope you can do some more videos from the Fengyuan/Houli/Sanyi area in the future!

hi Jim. the phenomenon of disaster tourism is a strange one indeed! i have some shows planned from downtown Sanyi itself, featuring the woodcarving shops (but i have to arrange it first, as they are weird about photography sometimes). since you lived there, please feel free to give me some suggested sites/topics for upcoming shows. take care and thanks!

If you would like to show your viewers what a typical Taiwanese town looks like, you could take them on the walk from Fengyuan Station down Zhongzheng Road to the area’s main attraction, Fengyuan Tzu Chi Temple and the adjoining Miaodong night market street (which is active during the daytime as well, and is open everyday). If you think they would be interested in more disaster tourism, the section of the Shihgang Dam which collapsed in the 921 Quake has been preserved.
