Events & Activities
A few friends and I were shopping around as we made our way out of a shopping mall in Taipei to get drinks from the bubble tea shop next door. As we were all waiting for our order, the sound gongs, pipes and the beating of huge drums, the parade music got ever louder as everyone around us overcome by the commotion.
Taipei’s Dragon Boat festival attracts people from all over Asia to observe this annual celebration. During the festival, one can find themselves surrounded by various foods, activities, games, and, of course, the spectacle of over 212 dragon boats, all with various colors and designs, competing to see who’s this year’s fastest boat!
