    New Year’s Eve Celebration 2020-12-31~2021-01-01

    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.

    Taiwan Open of Surfing 2020 Time is undecided

    "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 Nov. 2019 - Mar. 2020

    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!
