Taiwan celebrates arrival of 2019 with fireworks off Taipei 101 tower

Taiwan’s tallest skyscraper, the Taipei 101 tower, rang in the new year with its annual fireworks display on January 1.

As per tradition dating from 2005, the spectacular display was launched from Taipei’s iconic 508-metre-tall tower.

Thousands of people gathered on the streets near the venue in celebration. According to Taipei 101’s website, this year’s display was the longest ever at over six minutes.

The tower’s exterior was also lit up with a display featuring the island’s cultural highlights like night markets and flying lanterns.

  5. Hey Taiwan .
    Do not bow before China.

  6. The Chinese Civil War 1945-1949 (People's Republic of China, Republic of China) PRC vs. ROC has not ended, it can only be resolved by war! Reference to the American Civil War 1861-1865 (United States of America, Confederate States of America) USA vs. CSA, the greatest president of the United States, Lincoln, resolutely defend the United States with war! In 2005, the "Anti-Secession Law" passed by the PRC against the ROC and the "Anti-Secession Law" adopted by the USA against the CSA in 1861 are essentially the same. With this law, If Taiwan wants to be independent, the mainland China is certainly like USA 158 years ago. Just like what US's president Lincoln did!
