Lantern Festival, Pingxi
The Lantern Festival (two weeks after Chinese New Year), best celebrated in Pingxi, north Taiwan. You've seen the photos, but watching the clouds of lanterns rise up into the sky - hopes and dreams written on each one - really is a magical experience. And (this being Taiwan), it's not that difficult to get there and back despite the huge crowds.
