After being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Taiwan’s annual hot air balloon event in Taitung has finally taken off, giving those who have been cooped up indoors because of the pandemic a good excuse to get out and visit the eastern Taiwan county.
The Taiwan International Balloon Festival has been held in Taitung every summer since 2011.
