    2020 Sun Moon Lake Music & Fireworks Festival 2020-10-08~2020-11-21

    Artists and writers have been visiting Sun Moon Lake ever since the Qing Dynasty, inspired to create by its beautiful scenery. During the Japanese occupation, the Lake was listed as one of Taiwan’s Eight Views; it also became the location for the guesthouse of Japan’s Crown Prince. Later on, President Chiang Kai-shek would host international dignitaries here as well. Today Sun Moon Lake remains one of Taiwan’s most popular destinations, a recreation area internationally renowned for its abundance of beauty and activities in all seasons, such as red cherry flowers in spring, mountain mist in summer, tranquil water and mountains in fall, and white plum blossoms in winter. Enjoy hot springs, fresh plums, and a landscape of white plum blossoms or vibrant cherry blossoms during winter and spring. Just before summer is the peak firefly season; the summer and fall include the butterfly and frog season as well as the indigenous tribes’ Harvest Festival. There are lots of cultural celebrations everywhere all year round; and they will exceed your expectations. Every year between October and November is the must-see “Sun Moon Lake Music & Fireworks Festival,” a combination of “arts and culture” with “leisure and sports” lasting over a month. Ever since the Sun Moon Lake National Scenic Area Administration was established in 2000, there has been an annual fireworks show. The first Sun Moon Lake Festival was held in 2003, where fireworks teams from five different countries and regions were invited to perform in a nearly month-long feast of sound and light. The “Sun Moon Lake’s International Fireworks” increased in popularity afterwards and the yearly festival was established as one of the Lake’s most important events. Now that Sun Moon Lake’s Cycling, Music & Fireworks Festival is famous around the globe, the challenge is to keep things fresh while improving the overall planning and peripheral services.

    2020 Tern-Watching Tour, Matsu 2020-07-16~2020-10-20

    The plentiful marine products of the Matsu Islands not only attract aficionados from all around, but also the sea birds that soar in the sky overhead as they search for the small fish, like anchovies and herring, that constitute their primary diet. Each year these graceful guests fly in and nest on the uninhabited reefs of Matsu. As a result, in May 2000 the Matsu Islands Tern Refuge was established. The refuge comprises Shuangzi Reef in Dongyin Township, the Sanlian Islets, Zhongdao, Tiejian, Baimiao, and Jinyu in Beigan Township, the Liuquan Reef in Nangan Township, and Sheshan in Juguang Township. The protected birds include the Bridled Tern, the Black-napped Tern, the Roseate Tern, the Crested Tern, the Black-tailed Tern, the Reef Egret, and the Fork-tailed Swift. The best time for tern-watching in Matsu is from July to August. Whether it’s taking the bird-watching boat and admiring the scenery of Matsu and the islands as they soar up in the air or taking a leisurely walk along the harbor and underground tunnels to enjoy watching the terns from a unique vantage point, both are wonderful excursions not to be missed while visiting Matsu in the summer. In addition to the bird-watching excursions, you can also enjoy Beigan’s Mt. Da’ao, Qinbi Village, and a magnificent coast from the water, and along the way get a great view of Matsu’s unique local landscape and the military fortifications that date from an earlier time. A series of activities allow visitors to savor the unique military culture of Matsu and at the same time combine a trip rich in ecological education with total relaxation where they can experience firsthand the beauty of the place, enjoy the local culture, the unique “battleground” environment, and the rich ecology.

    2020 Yunlin International Puppets Arts Festival 2020-10-01~2020-10-11

    Shadow puppetry, glove puppetry, and marionette were introduced to Taiwan, blended with local customs and beliefs, and had developed into a unique art form of puppetry since, becoming three treasures of Taiwan. As time goes by, regardless of a vivid performance in the hands of the masters, an incidental music of live musicians’ pragmatic responses, or an audience of different generation, or even the purpose of performance switched from offering thanks to the gods to entertaining people, the significance of puppetry arts has been gradually changing. Yunlin International Puppet Arts Festival was founded in 1999, and Yunlin becomes puppets’ hometown in Taiwan, creating a variety of performing schools. To establish the International Puppet Arts Festival is to realize Yunlin as a cultural county, to carry forward the traditions of fine art, and to promote international cultural exchanges. The festival activities include inviting international puppet teams to perform, and sponsoring the Golden Palm Award to encourage skill contests and competitive performances of classic and innovative plays. In addition, it combines with exhibitions of arts, cultural and creative works, and installation art of agricultural product puppets, and promoting, encouraging, teaching and experiencing glove puppetry to enable sustainable development and to pass on the heritage of glove puppetry culture.
