  • Another Old Street, but this one is known for the so called “Heaven Lantern”. There are so many stores selling heaven lanterns on the street and also on the way to train station. There are many differ...  more »

  • A small town originally for coal mining workers, by the upstream of Keelung river. The town doesn't have much leveled space for the residents to build their houses. So, the houses are quite stacked together. The residents have also expanded their houses over the creek and formed a interesting street view. One of the famous thing in this village is the flying lantern. Lots of tourists come here to fly the lanterns with their wishes on. I don't know if I like this tourist attraction anymore because the lanterns have actually caused some fire when it they land on somebody houses or the trees few miles away and produced lots of wastes in the trees nearby. I will suggest the local government to apply some effective control to maintain the environment. When you come to this village, you can try their genuine foods (not the finger foods that you an always find them in the night market) and understand how they live in the past.
  • A different experiences anyone would encounter while taking a tour in the old street of Pingxi, although the place was not very big, lightening fire to a very huge paper lantern and letting it flew into the sky was such an experience. Don't forget to write down your wishes and intentions before letting it flew to the sky. ( I hope mine will be heard by our merciful Lord God).
  • Came here for the sky lantern. Great spot for the weekend, wasn’t that crowd as I imagined. With a lot of attractions nearby
  • I do like the old street ambience and the old school buildings. Peaceful place rather than the likes of jiufen which is just a few train stop away. Highly recommended.
  • FAVORITE Sky-Lantern SPOT! Iconic and notorious for sky-lantern! Its usually not as crowded as the other nearby destination Shi-fen where most tourists go for sky-lanterns. This is my favorite place to go for sky-lanterns in Taipei. Suggest going and doing so either in the late afternoon or evenings. You'll release the sky lanterns right on the train tracks by the Pingxi train station. Don't worry as the sky-lanterns are now generally made with recyclable or bio-degradable material (unlike before), so get busy write your wishes and watch them float to the skies!
