I talked about a long bridge (12 km) that we have in my country, and I wanted to give an idea of the length by comparing with the distance there is between Taiwan and China. I said that if we want to build a bridge between Taiwan and China, it would have about 8.8 km. My Taiwanese teacher said that Taiwanese people don't want to build such a bridge, although it's been in the news for quite some time, and I think they even started to build a part of it.

I regret talking about that bridge because it raised a delicate issue with China. Do you think such kind of things would bother Taiwanese people?

If you really wanted to know what Taiwanese people thought, then you wouldn't be asking this in an English forum.

Even Lee Teng-Hui's belief in Japanese technology has its limits.

The Taiwan strait isn't that deep but it would be by far the longest bridge in the world. I believe the Chinese would do it just to make a point though.


Any way you can add substance to this claim? I doubt very much anyone would build a bridge that long.

Edited to remove inlined picture because it was just too big.

Also to add: China's got a telephone area code reserved for Taipei too (026). Dream on.

Would you you drive on it? Doesn't matter which country builds it, I would not even consider walking on it.
