Pingtung Harvest

There is a new cluster of shops selling indigenous crafts and art in Pingtung City, named Pingtung Harvest. Opened this year, the shops are located in a former military dependents' village to the north of Pingtung Railway Station. A project realized by Pingtung County's Department of Indigenous Peoples, this new indigenous-culture hotspot in the city gives visitors a chance to learn about the county's indigenous tribes and purchase some of their unique products. Facebook

Chaojing Aquarium in Keelung

When the world-class National Museum of Marine Science & Technology was opened in 2013, not only a modern state-of-the-art museum was established. At the same time, a former waste dump area on the peninsula just to the north of the museum was turned into a beautiful seaside park. One of this park's attractions is the Chaojing Ocean Center, run by the museum. This facility has recently been remodeled, and now includes the Chaojing Aquarium, a place where you can marvel at the wonders of marine life with the help of modern technology, such as immersive VR and AR displays. Website

Cartoon Artist Jimmy in Jiaoxi

If you've ever been outside Yilan Railway Station and walked through the Jimmy Park you'll be familiar with the cute sculptures created by famous local cartoon artist Jimmy Liao. There is now another park with more of his work in Yilan County, right beside the bus station in the well-known hot-spring town of Jiaoxi. This time Jimmy has focused on a bunch of mischievous rabbits enjoying their time in Jiaoxi, three of them indulging in a hot-spring soak, five others riding a teeter-totter. Website(Chinese)
