What To Expect

Experience the old-world charm of Shifen and Pingxi and get to make your very own sky lantern in this half-day guided tour. A friendly, local guide will pick you up from your hotel in downtown Taipei and whisk you off to the Pingxi District of New Taipei City. Here you will get a chance to participate in a local custom that has been practiced for over hundreds of years: building a sky lantern. Once used as a signaling system for those living and working in the railroad industry, today you can paint your wishes and prayers onto the lantern before releasing it towards the sky. After this creative exercise, you will then explore Shifen Old Street, a collection of lanes and alleys in and around the Shifen railway station area. It’s a great place to grab some “xiaochi” snacks and quirky souvenirs. Your final stop is the scenic, 40-meter tall Shifen Waterfall, located 30 minutes away by walking northeast from the train platform area. Be sure to capture all your memories and keep snapping away with your camera!

  • Eds 12 Apr 2018
    It was cold and it rained when we went but those little annoyances doesn't matter anymore when you are with your friends. Definitely one of the highlight from our trip. I wish to be back to see the lanterns at night.

    We got there early (8:30) and we’re the first people to light the lanterns. Super cool experience and easy to donthat in the morning and then have the rest of the afternoon in Taipei.

  • Cindy 23 Mar 2018
    Our tour guide was super happy and pleasant! Enough time to enjoy everything and got to release lanterns before the rush of other tours.
  • Joiza Liza 19 Mar 2018
    a must when visiting taiwan! friendly and very approachable guide
  • Ngoc Duc 18 Mar 2018
    Good and convenience but you have to wake up so early and the driver pick up you late.
  • Grezelle 17 Mar 2018
    It was fun and was a great once in a lifetime experience! I was able to have my own sky lantern even if the coupon said we 4 people need to share in one lantern. The tour guide was on time and he's very patience and knowledgable enough to answer our questions. This is highly recommended for those who travel solo as well like me. If ever I visit taiwan again, I will definitely book this tour once again.
