The Story of Keelung

Keelung City is a port city in the northeastern part of Taiwan. The city was ruled by the Spanish in the early 17th century before being handed over to the Dutch, then taken over by The Qing Empire. During The Japanese Era, the Japanese took over and Keelung was elevated to a city. After the handover of Taiwan from Japan to China in 1945, the city was eventually established as a city of Taiwan.
