Visit night market is a part of Taiwanese life. Due to the coronavirus pandemic this year, Taitung becomes the most popular touristic place in Taiwan. According to the statistics of the Taitung County Environmental Protection Bureau, the quantity of refuse this June was 386 metric tons more than the same period last year. In other words, the increase of 12 to 13 metric tons of refuse each day causes a severe burden on the environment.
In order to remedy the situation, the Taitung County Government, Taitung County Environmental Protection Bureau, and Taitung Tourism Night Market Promotion Association have cooperated to foster a comfortable and environmentally friendly night market environment. Due to theirefforts, Taitung Tourism Night Market has been recognized as one of 22 eco-friendly demonstration night markets in the country, and has been awarded as a 2-stars market by the Ministry of Economic Affairs!
