Description

The “Sky Lantern Police Station” is comprised of a 9 meter tall sky lantern shaped glass curtain and nearly 200 thousand LED lights. There are light shows every half hour during weekdays 1600-1900 and holidays 1600-2000 introducing the origin of sky lanterns and Pingxi local features. It also offers customized “Police Wishing Sky Lantern”. Tourists can write down their blessings and dreams on police sky lantern post cards and see them slowly rise on the main sky lantern structure on the plaza, which is a radically different experience from traditional sky lanterns. Every police sky lantern costs 150NT, and the postcards can be taken back as souvenirs after scanning.
