hi guys,

i'll be heading to taipei from 1-11 august. i'm in the midst of planning my trip now. i've got a few queries:

- is there anywhere where i could play with fireworks in taipei?
- also, i'd like to release the pingsi lantern too, would it be available in august period ? (as i have read that the lantern festival is in march period)

thanks!
mayb can try areas like jiufen,pingsi....rural areas usually can play fireworks
think some1 mention b4...u can put lantern throughout the yr wan

You fly from which country, why need 7 hours flight?

If touch down at 6.15pm, by the time reach taipei main station already 7.30pm minimum (assume no traffic jam), check in and freshen up already 8pm. Which hotel you have book?
