Action Asia - - WHERE’S HOT -

Feb 19 Pingxi, Tai­wan Though the pa­per il­lu­mi­na­tions can be re­leased any time, it’s only dur­ing the an­nual fes­ti­val when the spec­ta­cle of thou­sands of lanterns ris­ing to the sky against the back­drop of the old rail­way tracks can be seen. Ad­mis­sion is free and lanterns cost around NT$200. Ven­dors along the tracks have cal­lig­ra­phy brushes and ink avail­able for paint­ing zo­diac signs and bless­ings to send into the sky.
