Located at the northern part of Taiwan, New Taipei City is the most populated city in the country and is well-known as a place to release sky lanterns. Some of the popular places within New Taipei City include Jiufen (九份), Tamsui (淡水) and Pingxi (平溪).  Pingxi was in fact the setting for the 2011 Taiwanese blockbuster movie You Are the Apple of My Eye (那些年,我們一起追的女孩).

As the Singapore face of New Taipei City, the Traveller, also known as the winner, will get to experience life as a local.
