Chinese New Year

The Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year, is Taiwan’s most important and longest holiday. Spending time in Taiwan during the two-week holiday offers insight into the Taiwanese culture that you wouldn’t get otherwise.

While New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day tend to be quiet family affairs, a time when Taiwanese return home, dine with family and pay visits to friends and relatives, things start to get exciting toward the end of the holiday during the Lantern Festival. On the last day of the Chinese New Year, expect to see colorful displays of lanterns, many firecrackers and good food.
