Taiwanese Lanterns, Landscapes & Landmarks

Marvel at fascinating rock formations on the coast, tour rural Taiwan and release a lantern into the sky for good luck.

About Your Trip

Experience some of Taiwan’s most celebrated settings, remarkable for their natural and cultural significance. Starting from your base in Taipei, you’ll embark on a full-day tour of the island’s northern coast. Don’t forget your camera — the landscape here is famed for the striking hoodoo rock formations found in postcard-perfect Yehliu Geopark. Continue to Pingxi, where you’ll release a lantern into the sky. This town hosts an annual festival that features lanterns and fireworks.

Up for more sightseeing? You’ll have ample leisure time to further explore Taipei at your own pace!

What we love:
• Yehliu Geopark, on Taiwan’s northern coastline, is home to distinctive geological structures known as hoodoo stones. The most notable one is called Queen’s Head Rock.
• Near your hotel is Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, a famous monument built in memory of the former president.
• In Taiwan, it is believed that letting a lantern float away is like sending good wishes into the sky.

Destination

Rich in Chinese and Japanese cultures, indigenous diversity and Western influences, Taiwan is a fascinating country and a study in contrasts. While the country’s passion for its ancestry and heritage remains strong, the Taiwanese are a forward-thinking people, boasting top-notch public education, freedom of the press, accessible health care and more. And despite its small size, Taiwan plays a large high-tech role in the global economy as the producer of the majority of the world’s personal computers.

The capital of Taipei is the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the ruggedly beautiful scenery and ethnic diversity of the country, which features a vast array of natural and cultural discoveries that can be found nowhere else. Even more, politeness, honor and respect for elders are prime concerns in Taiwan, courtesies also extended to its many visitors.
