On the 10th of October each year celebration and official ceremony are held around Taiwan. The major official firework event will only hold by one city, but the other cities will proceed with its own celebration and activities.

During this important day of Taiwan, both local and oversea visitors and honored dignitaries from all over the world gather in Taiwan to celebrate and show their respect for the nation.

The celebration ceremony begins with the raising of the flag and national anthem followed by a military parade.

The National Holiday in Modern Taiwan

The Double Tenth Day or Taiwan National Day is now celebrated as a holiday. The holiday often align with the weekend and it became a long weekend. Therefore it is often a opportunity for the people to take a short vacation out of town. The renowned attractions are often packed visitors as well as the crazy traffic jamming throughout the famous tourist sites. We suggest tourist visiting Taiwan at this time avoid the long distance traffics and simply just enjoy the city.
