Sky Lanterns at Ping Xi, Taiwan
A lot of visitors who tour Taipei will also pop by Ping Xi area as it is a few hours drive away. Many years ago, I once release Sky Lanterns at night at Ping Xi, even though releasing sky lanterns at night is more magical as the glow from the lantern is more obvious, releasing sky lanterns in the day is much more festive! There were a lot of people there in the day and many shops too! Unlike in the evening where all shops are closed and there aren’t as many people.
We picked a lantern which has 4 colours, and it costs us NT$200 (SG$9), there are those which is single colour at NT$150 or 8 colours at NT$350.
