    The Unique Charm of Pingxi
    The Pingxi Old Town is a popular tourist destination and deeply loved by domestic and international visitors alike. Its centerpiece attraction is mountainous scenery along the Pingxi Line, a railway that still offers a glimpse the glory of the olden days, and on the unique cultural landscape of its old street shopping district. The beauty of Shi-fen Fall, which is nicknamed “Niagara Fall of Taiwan,” has mesmerized numerous visitors. Near the Fall are the Ling Jiao and Wang Gu Railway Stations. The unique natural beauty and historical sites make Pingxi equally enjoyable in its day and night, as they allow one to experience the beauty of mountainside and historic railway during the day, and enjoy the internationally renowned Sky Lantern Festival at night.
