Old Jinshan Airfield and Li Qifeng Mansion
On the way from downtown Jinshan to Jinbaoshan, there are two places worth visiting nearby Sanjie Bridge. One of them is the site of a small military airfield built by the Japanese during World War II. It was soon abandoned after its completion because of plane-crashing and its little function. Only three huge stone rollers used for pressing the airfield ground were left behind, now placed on a platform donated by Dharma Drum Mountain Foundation, as the relics of this airfield. The surrounding area is now a beautiful flower farmland, the biggest supplying area of azalea in Taiwan.
Nearby the airfield, you can see the Li Qifeng Mansion, a well-preserved old house built in 1810. The “swallow-tail” decorations on the roof show that someone in the Li family, the richest in Jinshan at that time, had been a government official in the Qing Dynasty. It is a traditional three-hall mansion, gracefully built, with a very rare feature of a half-moon pond for “feng-shui (wind and water)” to ensure the everlasting prosperity of the family.

In addition to the Jinshan Old Airport Relics, the Jinshan Hot Springs and Old Street are also famous. There are four types of hot spring water in Jinshan: seabed spring, carbonate spring, sulfur spring, and iron spring. Every hot spring resort in Jinshan has distinctive character.
