2023 Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival
The Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival is the epitome of lantern festival celebrations in Taiwan. It has been called “the second biggest New Year’s Eve celebration in the world” by the Discovery Channel, and is one of CNN’s 52 Things To Do. For the festival, both Pingxi and Shifen are both towns rich in lantern culture and history. During Chinese New Year it is especially encouraged for tourists to visit Pingxi and Shifen, releasing a Chinese lantern.
