With the approach of the holiday season, the newest issue of Discover Taipei explores the local Christmas scene, from church services to parties. Of course, there is also information on places to go for the wonderful Christmas feast.
Of course, the last issue in 2009 would not be complete without a guide to the city’s renowned New Year Countdown Party. On December 31, revelers have a chance to see their favorite artists at the concert and watch the spectacular fireworks show at Taipei 101 to ring in the New Year.
To prepare readers for the 2010 Taipei International Flora Expo, this issue also includes reports on upcoming exhibitions such as the Chrysanthemum Exhibition at Shilin Presidential Residence and the Taipei Flower Show at Daan Park.
