5. Pinxi


There is a traditional way for Taiwanese to make wishes or make new year resolution. We would write it on the sky latterns and watch it fly into the sky. Usually, there would be a lot of people during chinese new year.

How to get there: Go to Taipei Main Station and take train to Ruifung station. Get off there and buy the one day ticket amd transfer to PinXi line. Usually it would be quite crowded, since Taiwanese people also like to go there to relax.
