totally forgot that period i chose was the 'auspicious' period, now got to face the music.

Just wondering, any forumers visit taiwan during this period of time? I think it's a very big thing in taiwan right?

I dont think places will be empty. Ximenting and Shihlin is just as crowded during this period as during the rest of the year. Taiwanese youth like to party, no matter what!!

so it's quite ok to go during this period of time eh? I mean, they dont perform the rituals thru out the whole 7th month right?Just specific day?

Difinitely okay to travel. People burn paper money and incense on specific days, thats about it.

Also I find it strange that the People that burn the most amount of Paper money are the massage palors and "Barber" Shops personel. .
