吉客鏈：金門移民 X 鹿港通商 X 泉州文化
Kinmen Island is as an outlying island of Taiwan, from which you can easily see mainland China. It has been a frontier defense location since the Ming Dynasty. I know it as a navy and army military base and also a fishery hub. I first visited Kinmen in 2012.
Kinmen is also an authentic Minnan-style 【Note1】island and a national park (recognized in 1995) with historical, natural and critical military features.
