Taiwan ROC - Tainan Anyi Bridge 臺南安億橋


Stamp Issue : 2010-03-10 

This bridge links two historical sites, Anping Fort (Fort Zeelandia) and Yizaijincheng (Eternal Golden Fort), hence its name Anyi. Spanning the Tainan Canal, it is 120.3 meters long and 25.5 meters wide. Near the bridge on the right bank you can find the old Anping village, the old Tait & Co. Merchant House, the Anping Artillery Fort and the Anping Fort, a national Grade I historical site. Opened to traffic in November, 2003, this bridge has an observation platform, which is a great place to enjoy sunsets and views of Anping Harbor.
