Taiwan ushered in 2018 with a spectacular fireworks display on Taipei 101, which received global news coverage.

The fireworks display was broadcast around the world by satellite and covered by UK media outlets such as The Guardian, The Telegraph and The Daily Mail. Launched under the theme ‘2018 Happy Together’, the innovative and environmentally friendly fireworks were integrated with a light-emitting diode (LED) display, which aimed to expose the world to Taiwan’s creativity.

Taipei 101 has showcased a New Year's fireworks display annually since 2005 and frequently makes the highlights of New Year's Eve celebration packages broadcast by the BBC and other international broadcasters. Footage of the display can be viewed on Trending Taiwan’s YouTube channel, via this link.
