To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Taipei Metro system, this One-day Pass Ticket design features 20 unique city images, in which 20 Taiwan macaque monkeys are looking for celestial peaches. In Taiwanese culture peach represents longevity and 2016 is the Year of the Monkey according to Chinese zodiac.

20 Taipei city spots, depicted in a semi-abstract style with minimal forms and vivid colors, reflect the lively and bustling atmosphere of Chinese New Year.
