    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.

    "Sports Tourism" has long been considered the world's fastest-growing market in the tourism industry. Through active participation in sports, or engaging in leisure or watching sport activities, or visiting famous attractions, among others, the fashionable field is developed to create combination results of sport and tourism, which brings economic benefits of sport-related tourism that major cities and countries are prompting and organizing sporting events to attract the global tourist crowds. Taitung is a unique place in terms of "waves," regardless of size or shape, which could be said to be blessed, and furthermore, the northeast monsoon blowing autumn and winter contributes to the wave potentials in Donghe and Jinzun area, and therefore Taitung is certified as the latest international surfing competition venues in Asia by the Asian Surfing Championship (ASC), becoming one of the latest and the best surfing venues following Malaysia, Bali, Thailand, and the only venue for international surfing tournaments in Taiwan, which provides an opportunity for the international players to further understanding of the beautiful east coast of Taiwan.

    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!
