Tucked away between Cingjing Farm and Hehuanshan, Meifeng Farm is generally not open to the public except in March, when flowers are in glorious, exuberant bloom. Expect to be amazed by a medley of cherry blossoms, peach blossoms and tulips that greet you from all directions. In springtime, these pink flowers have fringed white lips that are strongly marked and mottled with brown on the inner surface. The eye-dazzling peach blossom tunnel is the big draw here. The tree branches bend over to form a natural tunnel and bring a blush of romantic sensation to this real gem of a find secretly hidden on the Hehuanshan Highway.
Open: 2020/3/14-2020/3/31

New Taipei City Wanjinshi International Marathon

If this piques your interest, why not plan a trip of a lifetime to Taiwan by taking part in Wanjinshi International Marathon held every March? Whether you are a seasoned runner or you are just starting out, this scenic marathon will be a delight.

Due to the status of the new coronavirus epidemic, it has been announced that it will be temporarily suspended this year. And reserve the qualification of all applicants.

Laomei Stone Ditches

Set along the North Coast of Taiwan, Laomei Stone Ditches are a unique geological formation formed by lava from a volcanic eruption. Over a long period of time, the ocean waves eroded these rocks into a large cluster of stone ditches. In March, green algae flourish on the surface of these stones, creating a natural carpet of lush greenery seemingly laid out by the rolling waves. Such a breathtaking coastal landscape is only visible during the low-tide hours. Be sure to check out the high and low tide predictions before visiting. Do not step on the seaweed to take pictures, as this will affect their growth and damage local ecology.

Keelung Miaokou Night Market

If you decide to make a trip to the North Coast, just so you know that Keelung Miaokou Night Market is also on the way. In March, the weather is still often on the cool side, so night markets will be a good idea. You don’t get ridiculously sweaty, and you get to enjoy this bustling street of gastronomical fun.

Flying Fish Festival in Lanyu

Lanyu (Orchid Island) is a tiny volcanic, mountainous island off the southeastern coast of Taiwan, where inhabitants are mainly aboriginals — members of the Tao tribe. Flying fish, considered to be a gift from heaven, is central to the Tao culture. Every March, the launch of the wooden canoe (or “Meyvanwa” in the local language) is a traditional ceremony that marks the very beginning of the flying fish festival and attracts thousands of people to crowd around the harbor to watch this spectacle.

Maolin Butterfly Viewing

When the first ray of sunlight hits the Maolin Purple Butterfly Valley in winter, Purple Crow Butterflies instantly wake up and begin their busy routines of passionately chasing rays of sunlight that pierce the thick canopy. Purple Crow Butterflies are rare migratory butterflies that arrive according to schedule each winter at the Purple Butterfly Valley in Maolin to pass the winter. In the river valleys in Maolin and Liouguei, which provide shelter for the butterflies, you can find the colorful Striped Blue Crow, Double-Branded Black Crow, Dwarf Crow, the Euploea eunice and even the Chestnut Tiger butterfly of even more colors. This year’s butterfly season will end at the end of March.
