On June 23, 2014 by admin

One of the event highlights during the long summer in Taiwan is the annual Fulong Sand Sculpture Festival that takes place from early May through to the end of June.

Fulong is a popular beach resort area in the north of Taiwan, approximately 90 minutes outside of Taipei.

This year’s festival features a total of 80 massive sand sculptures that took 30 Taiwanese artists and 16 international artists nearly a month to create.

Entrance to the festival grounds costs NT$100, and provides a good hour or so of artistic entertainment, as well as the opportunity to enjoy the beach which is said to have the best sand in the country.
