Like everything else in Taiwan, the local burner community is transforming rapidly. More and more Taiwanese make the journey to the playa every year, and Burning Man 2006 saw the first ever Chinese Speakers Tea Party. 2014 saw the first Burning Taiwan event on Honeymoon Bay in Yilan, and 2015 saw the first ever Asia Burner Leadership Summit held in Taipei, featuring a visit from Burning Man Project founders Larry Harvey and Marian Goodell.
In 2019, Burners in Taiwan produced their first authorized Regional Burn, called Turtle Burn. The community has grown to include a Discord server and host several pre-Burn camping events and a second, Covid-safe Turtle Burn in 2021.
With more Taiwan regional projects coming to the playa every year, including the monumental Mazu Temple in 2015, and more Black Rock City magic weaving it's way back to Taiwan, La Ilha Formosa (the beautiful island) is emerging as one of the most dynamic spots on the burner globe.
