Come and enjoy a thoughtful moment!  It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience!  Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival is an annual event celebrated on the 15th day of the first Chinese lunar month.  Highly recommended by famous publishers and media such as Discovery Channel, CNN Travel, Fodor's Travel and National Geographic Travel, every year it attracted tens of thousands visitors from overseas.

Departure: 8 FEB 2020 (SAT)


Tour Description:

After a 60-90 mins drive, you will arrive in Shifen, a small town prospered during the 1920s because of Taiwan's mining industry.  It is also well known for the awarded film director Hou Hsiao-Hsien's masterpiece Dust in the Wind, where the famous scenes were shot.  The gold mines are now closed, however this town continues to exert an enduring allure that attracts people to visit and dream.  


Before the event starts, your tour guide will distribute the lanterns and teach you how to prepare and launch a Sky Lantern.  Write your best messages on the lantern and send your wishes to God for yourself, beloved ones and family.  When hundreds of these lanterns fly into the sky and illuminate in the dark, capture the moment with your eyes, pause, reflect and pray.  It is going to be a year of blessings.


After the event, assemble at the designated meeting point in PingXi.  We will return to the down town Taipei City where you may choose to disembark at Raohe Night Market or Taipei main Station.
