Three Fairies Bridge 三仙台

These pictures were taken at Taitung's most famous tourist attraction, the Three Fairies Bridge.  This bridge/scenic area is at the north end of Taitung County, in Cheng Gong Municipality.  這些照片是台東縣最有名的觀光景點---三仙台.  三仙台位於台東縣北部的成功鎮.

I've had arguments with people about how to translate 三仙台 into English.  Some people use "San Shian Tai"  or "Sansiantai."  Other people prefer "Three Fairies Bridge,"  or "Three Immortals Bridge."  It all depends on how you translate 仙.  我跟很多人討論過怎麼翻譯三仙台這個名稱.  有的人認為是"San Shian Tai"或是"Sansiantai," 還有人認為是"Three Fairies Bridge"或是"Three Immortals Bridge."  這取決於"仙"這個字的認定.


This is the main path leading to the bridge.  The wind was very strong that day.  這是往橋的最大的步道.  那一天風很大.


Local flora.  The fruit of these plants, called lin tou in Chinese, can be used to make juice.  This juice is mixed with sugar cane, and it is very good on a hot day.  那邊的植物.  靠近岩石的植物會長出水果.  這種水果叫林投果.  林投果汁可以喝 , 很適合炎熱的天氣.


This is just a picture of rocks.  Really.  Just rocks.  這就只是石頭.  沒錯.  石頭.

You might have thought it was a picture of trees.  But no.  It's just rocks.  你可能想這是張有樹的照片.  但不是.  只是石頭.


Closer to the bridge.  The island on the other side is a favorite haunt of local fishermen.  比較靠近橋的部分.  附近的居民很喜歡在另一邊的小島釣魚.


View of the coast.  The town on the other side is also called San Shian Tai.  It's a sleepy little place. 海邊的風景.  另外一邊的村子也叫三仙台.  很鄉下的地方.


View from the bridge, also looking back towards the coastline.  橋上的風景.  往海岸的方向.

  1. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

    1. As the brother of one American woman and the son of another, I can't share your point of view, but thank you for the memorable comment. Anyone out there have any thoughts on this?

  2. Mr. American man, your comment is nothing related to this article on this personal blog at all! I totally understood the point of your comment, but I suggest you to write your comment on the articles or the blogs that related to your thoughts. Then, perhaps, some people will give you some feedback. Thank you!
