Fight or Surrender: Taiwan’s Generation Gap Over China’s Threats


The San Jiao Fort cafe on Kinmen Island is arguably the best place in Taiwan to watch the threat of invasion from China. Directly overlooking the Chinese city of Xiamen, just 10 kilometers away, it is built on top of an old military bunker, decorated with camouflage netting and serves hot and cold drinks.

With Chinese warships lingering off the coast of Taiwan and missiles falling into the sea, the divided loyalties of the cafe’s two owners says a lot about a generational change in Taiwan that has transformed the island’s relationship with China.
