After passing through the gates of the "Kinmen Officers Holiday Center", you'll see a large white building. This is a two-story colonial style building, commonly referred to as a "western-style house". It's composed out of brick and wood, with exterior pillars. Even amongst Taiwan or South East Asia, you'll rarely encounter a building as large as the Chen Jing Lan Old Western-Style House. The building's original landlord Chen Jing Lan, went to Indonesia and Signapore to make a living at a young age. After successful business, in 1917 he returned to his hometown to build a western-style garden, which took four years to complete. But because of the war later on, he did not return. The building was then used by Kinmen's army, and turned into both a school and hospital. When the Second Taiwan Strait Crisis was over, it was turned into the Kinmen Officers Holiday Center, under the administration of the military. With rennovations complete, it's now open to visitors free of charge. In addition to the historical value of the building and the life of Chen Jing Lan, the space used for the military hospital and vacation area are open as well. Located outside the building and facing the sea southward is Jintang Park, around 15 hectares in size. It's the largest western-style garden to Kinmen, and a great place to visit.
