Thanks to active promotion by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau in recent years, the Taiwan Lantern Festival has earned a place among the world’s premier festival events.
The 2012 Taiwan Lantern Festival was extensively covered by print and electronic media channels in Japan, Korea, the United States, Southeast Asia, and Europe, further raising the reputation and visibility of Taiwan on the global stage and helping to attract a record number of international visitors (29,219) to the festival.
Recommended by the U.S. Discovery Channel as one of the world’s best festival activities, the Taiwan Lantern Festival broke new records in 2012 in terms of length of the festival period and number of visitors.
In 2013, the Taiwan Lantern Festival will be held in Hsinchu County. The Taiwan Tourism Bureau warmly invites you to join in the fun at that time!
2013 Taiwan Lantern Festival will be held in Hsinchu County. Main subject will be “animation, technology, and culture”, which represent Hsinchu County’s local cultural characteristics. Hsinchu County Government also creates a website for “2013 Taiwan Lantern Festival in Hsinchu County” through multi-media and video streaming as well as social network activities.
"2013 Taiwan Lantern Festival Website" is in both Chinese and English. Photos and videos can be viewed through streaming multi-media on website easily. In addition, Hsinchu County Government will broadcast 2013 Lantern Festival’s opening and closing ceremonies via video streaming to global audience.

2013 Lantern Festival will bring a new kind of light and shadow show to the audience. It uses a mixture of light and shadow movement and different rhythm to generate the sense of speed, which generates a brand new visual treat to all visitors and is quite different from traditional lantern exhibition.
