It’s all about pineapples this long weekend in Pingtung’s Gaushu Township. Organized by the county government, a festival is underway celebrating the southern county’s bestselling “golden diamond” pineapples, which are just about ready for harvest. The event offers pineapple picking and a variety of pineapple-themed activities.
Pineapples, pineapples, everywhere. In all the colors of the rainbow. Looking down from above, they form a spectacular sight.
Here in Pingtung, a 9.5 kilometer stretch of mountainside highway is surrounded by pineapples wearing colorful hats. It’s a beautiful backdrop that’s attracted a flock of shutterbugs.
A viewing platform rises 8 meters over the fields, so that visitors can look out into the horizon and immerse themselves in two hectares of natural beauty. For safety, only 20 people are allowed up on the deck at a time. [FULL STORY]
