Christmas Lights at MRT Facilities Around Town 

Christmas Lights at MRT Facilities

From today through February 19, 2023, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) will be setting up Christmas lights decorations at various affiliated facilities around Taipei. Venues include Zhongshan Linear Park, Shuanglian Linear Park, and a nine-feet tall Christmas tree next to Exit 11 of MRT Daan Park Station!


The Christmas lights decorations along Xinzhongshan Linear Park has taken place annually over the past couple of years. The park is a popular spot among bloggers and tourists for photos and selfies during the Christmas season. In 2021, the area was furnished according to the theme of “fantasy forest,” spotlighting works such as paths decorated by neon lights, heart-shaped gigantic balloon, dynamic galaxy corridor, dandelion lanterns, and more.


This year, the decorations will reflect distinct characteristics of Nordic countries, including wavy-pattern floor design coupled with projected light among the trees to recreate scenes from fairy tales. Visitors will be able to enjoy the beautiful and mesmerizing display of illuminations when they visit the park at night. 


In addition, there will be a major concert taking place across 2 sessions on December 10. The afternoon session (2:30 PM – 4 PM) is reserved for MRT members lucky enough to win the raffle (the list of winners has been published on TRTC’s Facebook page on November 9). The show will feature performances by dance group AcQua, VENUS and Ozone. The evening session (6 PM – 9 PM) will spotlight Black 2 Storm, TRASH, Your Woman Sleep with Others, New Formosa Band, and Chen Chuang-ying. Admission is free of charge. 


For more information, please call the 24-hour customer hotline of TRTC (02-218-12345) or the 1999 Citizens’ Hotline. Details are also available on TRTC’s Chinese website (https://www.metro.taipei/).
