Pingxi Sky Lantern Experience: [ FULL ITINERARY ]
Pingxi and Shifen are just two of several towns alongside highway 106, a narrow back road that runs between southern Taipei and southern Keelung. Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival is one of the three most popular and well - known celebration event during the Lantern Festival. Since 1999, the Taipei County Government has devoted substantial resources to promote this festival, in a bid to promote it to become an international and multi - ethnic culture exchange activity. Through this festival, presenting the Sky Lantern tradition and the natural beauty of Pingxi to the public and prayers to the heavenly God and wishing for prosperity and peace for the nation and its citizens.

Shifen Old Street: The Pingxi Branch Rail Line extends 12.9 kilometers through Keelung River Valley from Sandiaoling to Jingtong stations. The line was built in 1918 to transport coal; and in 1992 it was repurposed as a tourism route. Homes hug closely to the tracks, adding to a nostalgic ambiance that has made the area a popular site for filming ads. The romantic beauty of the landscape has made this area a popular visitor attraction

Shifen Waterfall: Shifen Waterfall lies between Dahua Station and Shifen Station on the Pingxi Railway Line in Pingxi District, New Taipei City. Torrents of water thunder down this curtain-type fall like a white satin sheet. As the water plunges into the large, deep pool beneath, it raises mists that often enshroud the falls. On sunny days, the mists paint dazzling rainbows in the blue skies: a sight that has earned the waterfall pool the nickname of "Rainbow Pond." Because its bedrock slopes in the opposite direction of the water flow, Shifen Waterfall is a cascade-type waterfall similar to North America's Niagara Falls, earning it the nickname of "Taiwan's Niagara Falls."
