‘Artrain Taipei’ Features Multicultural Activities at Hostels in December

December will be a month boasting a lively arts and cultural scene for Taipei!

The Department of Information and Tourism (TPEDOIT) is joining hands with the City’s accommodation industry players to hold the “Artrain Taipei” event throughout December, featuring installation art, exhibitions, performances, humanistic essence, creative products, crossover collaborations, music, drama, and dance!

There will be 28 free activities and performances taking place across the City’s idiosyncratic youth hostels. Performers include individual bands, singer songwriters, and aboriginal dance troupes.

Those interested in guided tours are invited to sign up for the “Adventure Train.” Participants have a chance to explore Taipei’s important historical attractions including Taipei Beimen Post Office, Zhongshan Hall, Office of the President, and Jingfu Gate among others by riding the “G17 Old Town Bus.”

Musical enthusiasts should not miss out on the “Music Drama Artrain,” involving stage performances against the backdrop of hotel spaces. Registration is required via (Chinese) due to limited seating.

Artrain Taipei also features a variety of performances that do not require signing up ahead of time. Highlights include “Return Artrain,” “Life Story Artrain,” “Taiwanese Mariachi Artrain,” “Daily Girl on Tour,” and “Artrain End.” From indigenous traditional songs, story sharing, nostalgic Taiwanese folk songs, live band gigs, Youtuber concert, to talk shows – the diversified forms of performances seek to present a feast where the island’s immense arts and cultural energy interacts with travelers from around the world.

According to statistics, Taipei currently has 61 youth hostels providing 4,000 beds. The number of youth hostels has increased 12.5 times over a five-year period. TPEDOIT has subsidized 21 hotel-organized events in 2017 amounting to NT$6 million.
