Spend some time in the old mining district of Pingxi for a day of traditional eats, beautiful views and wishes by way of sky lanterns.
The easiest way to and around Pingxi is via train. Take the train from Taipei Main Station to Ruifang, and board the Pingxi Line train from there.
There are many Sky Lantern vendors to help you personalize and set off a lantern. We waited until night time for ours.
Lover’s wishes and messages.
Fresh grapefruit and kumquat tea.
Long lines for their Taiwanese style sausages.
