Time for Taiwan – A Smithsonian Event

Date: Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Location: National Museum of Natural History, Baird Auditorium & Rotunda
Address: 10th & Constitution Ave NW, Washington DC

Taiwan is one of Asia’s industrial powerhouses, and its diverse natural assets and cultural attractions make it a draw for visitors as well. Situated off China’s southeastern coast, much of the island is lush forestland, but the topography includes picturesque mountains, rice fields, and beautiful beaches. Because of its unique historical and geographical background, Taiwan as we know it today reflects an extremely vivid and diverse culture.

Take an armchair tour of Taiwan’s beauties, customs, and traditions with Pauline Frommer, co-president of Frommer Media and a nationally syndicated travel columnist. The evening also includes classical Taiwanese folk songs performed on the erhu, a traditional Chinese stringed instrument, by Juilliard graduate Wei-Yang Andy Lin and other musicians. A tasting of Taiwanese treats and bubble teas closes the journey.

At the event, there will be a drawing for one economy class round-trip flight from JFK to TPE. You must be present at the event to enter and win. Drawing is to take place during the program. No purchase necessary to enter.
