【看CP學英文】位在新竹縣關西鎮的東安古橋成為近日IG爆紅景點之一,古樸的橋墩、典雅五拱橋外型,橫跨在牛欄河,走在兩旁綠蔭下的舊石路,相當愜意。

Located in Guanxi Township, Hsinchu County, the Tung An Bridge has become one of the most popular i#Instaworthy spots in northern Taiwan. The five-arch shape old bridge features rustic piers spanning over the Niulan River.

這座古橋建於日治時代(西元1927年),橋的建材取自於當地著名的方解石,由知名石匠操刀設計,精細的工藝讓罕見的五拱橋即使歷經百年風霜,仍相當堅固,現在為往來關西街區與東安里的重要通道。

Designed by a famous Japanese architect, the bridge, made of local calcite stone, was built during the Japanese rule era (1927).

The delicate craftsmanship has made the rare five-arch bridge strong enough to withstand the hardships of the past century. It is now an important gateway connecting the Guanxi center and Dongan.
