Nicknamed as Stilt Houses, Shiding East Street is the only tunnel street in Taiwan. If you take a closer look, you will find that these houses are supported by pillars hanging above the riverbed. The unique architectural structure came about because everybody wanted to have their own place in the limited space available. These stilt houses are sturdier than many people think as they have been here for several decades.
