    2021 Biennial Butterfly Beauty Festival 2021-11-06~2022-02-28

    The "Biennial Butterfly Beauty Festival" is a magnificent yearly event that goes from November to March of the following year taking place in the Maolin National Scenic Area. During this period millions of migrating Euploea butterflies (purple in color) cross the ocean and arrive here to winter over. The Maolin National Scenic Area is proud of that fact that it is has one of the only two winter migratory butterfly gorges in the world. The purple Euploea is a rare wintering butterfly. Each winter millions of these butterflies gather together for the flight to the Dawushan Foothills to avoid the cold and to winter in the gorges, there presenting a spectacular ecological sight—the "Purple Butterfly Valley." Tourists from every corner of the world travel every year to Maolin to experience firsthand this magnificent, world-class scene of beautiful purple butterflies dancing in the air, and everyone comes away full of praise and admiration. On an early winter morning as the first rays of the sun shine down on Maolin's Purple Butterfly Valley, we come upon the purple Euploea that, awakened from their slumber, begin fervently to chase the sunrays, peeking through the treetops and the forest. From time to time, a butterfly will stop to display his garment of magical color then soar high and low as he shuttles around the valley. Not only does he provide a superb eco-touristic spot for those watching, but he also brings a small bit of warmth to a winter's day. You are invited and welcome to take advantage of this once-a-year, rare opportunity to appreciate these migrating butterflies and come to Maolin to experience the magnificent dance of the purple Euploea. With everyone's care and concern, the future will bring an endless cycle of this extraordinary sight!

    2021 Taiwan Hot Spring & Fine-Cuisine Carnival 2021-11-12~2022-04-30

    The gradual arrival of winter formally announces that Taiwan's peak hot spring season has begun! Taiwan abounds in the gifts of nature—cold springs, hot springs, mud springs, submarine springs—it is a world-famous scenic spot for springs of every variety. Beginning in 2007 the Tourism Bureau, Ministry of Transportation and Communication combined two touristic resources—the unique healthcare aspects of thermal springs and the demand for a modern, healthy diet—to integrate Taiwan's "thermal springs" and "gourmet cuisine" for a plan to launch a "Taiwan Hot Spring Fine-Cuisine Carnival." This event takes center stage throughout Taiwan at the same time each year, with one of Taiwan's 19 thermal spring areas chosen as the year's kick-off location. Not only is the Carnival an opportunity for Taiwanese tourists to soak up the pleasures of thermal springs throughout the country and receive merchandise discounts, overseas tourists are also fascinated and attracted, and the Carnival is a driving force behind the annual autumn/winter Taiwan hot spring tourist boom. During this period, hot spring areas throughout the country hold a series of hot spring/fine-cuisine events and pull together hundreds of county and municipal companies, introducing the scenic beauty of the springs, the local cultural landscape, and special products.

    2022 New Year's Eve Celebration 2021-12-31~2022-01-01

    What makes the Taipei New Year's Eve Celebration special is that it is different from the fireworks and performances put on by Sydney Australia, the second city to celebrate New Year' Eve, and also different from the countdown and lowering of the ball in Times Square in New York City. At Taipei's 101 building when the countdown enters the final stage, the building itself lights up floor by floor from the bottom up for the New Year's countdown, making Taipei 101 the biggest New Year's Eve countdown clock in the world. After the countdown is over, fireworks are immediately set off, a star-studded group gathers on the spot to accompany a variety of activities and special ceremonies, and a special, exciting, out-of-the-ordinary Taipei New Year's Eve celebration is on display! Although taking place in the winter with its low temperatures and frequent bursts of cold air, Taipei New Year's Eve celebration attracts more people the later in the evening it gets. Even if a cold snap hits, there is no drop in the enthusiasm of those welcoming in the new year. The Taipei city government, that runs the event, has made the concept of turning Taipei city into "New Year City," the creative axis of the event. Since the staging of Taiwan's first-ever grand New Year's event in 1995, it won an enthusiastic response among young people and had the media competing with each other to report it, and this later spread throughout the entire country with similar celebrations being held everywhere. On the day of the event, the Taipei city government will invite popular entertainers and famous pop singers to perform at the celebrations on the square in front of the government offices. At the same time, this glamorous New Year's Eve celebration puts Taipei squarely on the global stage, winning international applause and becoming one of the most famous international and Taiwanese New Year's events.
