History

The Xinghai Tunnel connects central Taipei to the outer Taipei city of Muja. Built atop a hill that serves as a large cemetery, it is no wonder the tunnel is haunted. Those driving through the tunnel experience a gue dong chiang, a Chinese term for a phenomena that makes it seems as if you are trapped in a place and cannot get out of it. In the tunnel, drivers can see the end, but they can’t reach it no matter how fast they drive towards it.

The apparition of an elderly woman is often seen dusting and cleaning the road midway through the tunnel. Even despite the honking of drivers, she never stops cleaning and she refuses to move out of the way. However, when the car comes within a few feet away from her, she disappears.
