Image Gallery Pescadores 澎湖諸島照片輯

Below are some of the views of the Pescadores Islands. Named 'Peng-Hu' in Chinese with the meaning 'peaceful lake', this string of islands is also known to the world as the Pescadores Archipelago, or the Fishermen's Islands, located between Taiwan and the Mainland China. When the Ming Dynasty was coming to an end, one of its great generals, Cheng-Gong Zheng, retreated to Taiwan with an ambition to recover the Mainland China. He died before his plan could be carried out. Penghu, the collection of islands with their surrounding waters, actually protects Taiwan as a shield, as beautiful as it is.

以下您將看到澎湖諸島的一些照片。澎湖這個名字南宋以來就有‘平湖’之稱,后來演變為‘澎湖’。平湖和澎湖在台灣話發音是一樣的。在鄭成功之前,歐洲沿海諸國的航海技術得羅盤之助,開始縱橫全世界海面,稱呼澎湖列島為‘漁翁島’。馬公有名的‘百事多利’飯店就是用Pescadores的譯音。鄭成功經由澎湖抵達台灣,將荷蘭人驅逐,經略台灣為反清復明的基地,也認識了澎湖的重要戰略地位。

If you are a native, or have visited the islands and want to share an image, please do drop me a line (that's Kuocheng) to submit an image.

假如您是澎湖人,或者到過澎湖,願意分享您的照片,請聯絡國城 分享照片.
