- The Matsu Islands, like a string of pearls fallen from the heavens around the mouth of the Min River, are sometimes called the "Pearls of the Eastern Min.” The islands are filled with enchanting mountain and coastal scenery, yet historical happenstance made them hardened fortresses on the sea, shrouded in mystery until military rule was lifted in the area in 1992. On March 15, 1999, the Executive Yuan designated Matsu a National Scenic Area. In June of that year, it permitted the Ministry of Transportation and Communications' Tourism Bureau to establish the Matsu National Scenic Area Administration to take responsibility for development and management work, and it officially began operations on November 26. From that time on, the unique face of Matsu began to be brought out.
