The month of December always brings excitement and joy within us as we approach Christmas Day and Year End Season. We are all excited about holidays, family and friends gathering and even Christmas decoration in malls or streets around us! Magical and dreamy lights scattered all around the place, making our commute to work or our visit to department store look 1000% more beautiful and fun. And in Taipei, you can definitely find beautiful dazzling light display that will lighten up your day.
One of last year (2017)’s highlight was the Christmasland in Banqiao area, New Taipei City. This 39-days annual event transformed the entire Banqiao area into a winter wonderland with sparkling glittering lights all over the place. The places include New Taipei City Plaza, New Banqiao Central Park, Banqiao Station Building and Banqiao Station Front Square.
One of our favorites that also the most popular display (because we have seen people posting about this spot) is a bridge all covered with lights. Walking through the bridge was like going to travel to another galaxy. It was so mesmerizing to the eyes and soul. Other spots we also found interesting are the Christmas tree and the lights were projected to a big building near the city square where visitors gathered together and shopped or tried some cuisine.
