Nantou City, Taiwan - Chinese New Year February 2018 This was totally unexpected to be visiting Nantou City during CNY and finding these stunning lanterns on display in an exhibition space beside the river. It drew lots of people every night during the week I was there and created such a stunning visual as you drove past. I don't believe this is an annual event, but suspect maybe this type of show moves around the country in a different place maybe. The green illuminated horse below is a huge permanent structure as you will see from the people standing at the base. Some of these lanterns are quite a few stories high such as the stunning rooster at bottom of this page. This is just a taste of what was here as it covered a few acres plus the usual food stall night market running down beside the river. Quite a festive atmosphere I have to say and pleased I had the chance to experience this wonderful display.
