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!

  • Teck Fong 14 Sep 2018
    Pick up sharp at our hotel at 7.30am. Reached Shifen sky lantern area before 9am. Selected the red colour lantern for good health & release to sky. Stroll along the suspension bridge & train station. After that went to Shifen water fall area. Walk & hike up steps to different view point. Tour guide was good to give explanation & information regards the tour scene. Heading back & reach hotel b4 12pm. Strongly Recommended to join the tour.

    I loved this half-day tour. Our tour guide was very informative and kind to give us a lot of time to ourselves and explore the Shifen area. The Pingxi Sky lantern was a bit rushed but understandable. Overall, experience is great!

  • Jamaica Marie 15 Aug 2018
    It was an awesome experience. The tour was on time. The tour guide is very fluent in speaking in english and he also suggest after our half-day tour, we can be dropped off at the Taipei 101 instead of going back to our hotel. My family and I were so happy when we tried writing our wishes on our lanterns. It was a sunny and hot day yet it was meaningful. We’ll definitely go back and book this trip again. Thank you Klook! To more adventures!
