Press conference promotes Austronesian wedding events


The 2017 Austronesian Wedding will kick off on March 4, 2017 at the Wutai Tribal Culture Square, Wutai Township as organized by the Pingtung County Government and the Maolin National Scenic Area Administration, Tourism Bureau, Ministry of Transport and Communications. A series of events will be held in a 29-day period. Visitors from around the world are encouraged to take part, enjoying the unique Rukai culture and beautiful tribal scenery.

The biggest event of all – the Rukai wedding - will take place on March 10 & 11 in Wutai. Ten marrying couples will exchange vows by the Dawu Mountain. The members of the tribes in Wutai will help the couples go through all wedding procedures as if they were their own sons and daughters, from proposing, gift-presenting, welcoming the bride, the wedding, and good-wish giving, beside lily flowers which represent the Rukai spirit. During the activity period, on all weekends in Wutai, Sandimen and Majia, visitors are free to attend some wonderful events. A holiday market and a photography competition will be held in Sandimen, while “blessings under blooming cherry trees” and a camping event will convene in Majia.
