Time for Taiwan: Taiwan’s 2016 tourism promotions program

To introduce travel to Taiwan, the Taiwan Tourism Bureau presented a promotions program simply dubbed “Time for Time!” on July 10, 2016 in Manila. The event unfolded at Meeting Room 7 of the SMX Convention Center on the 2nd Floor.

During the program Taiwan Tourism introduced to the local Philippine people the best tour package program to Taiwan, a free lucky draw of free flight tickets, hotel accommodation vouchers and several Taiwan special gifts prepared for the attendees.

The culinary culture of the Chinese people goes back a very long time; and while Chinese food can be enjoyed in every large city in the world today, true gourmets know that only in Taiwan is it possible to enjoy fine authentic cuisine from all the different regions of China.

In Taiwan, where most locals are huge fans of tasty and special cuisines, it is said that there is a snack shop every three steps and a restaurant every five. These establishments serve all kinds of Chinese food, and international cuisines. Most specially is that every county has their own specialty therein, for example, beef noodles, all kinds of pastries, Taiwan aboriginal cuisine, and the like. All these fine gourmets combine the special culinary culture in Taiwan so international visitors will like the local food offerings during their visit.

From the north to the south, there are many large shopping centers and chain department stores in Taiwan. For example, the north has Taipei 101 shopping complex, Ximending, and Zhongxiao-Dunhua Shopping Area in Taipei; in Central Taiwan there are the Fengjia night market and the Jingming 1st Street shopping area in Taichung; South Taiwan has New Juejiang Commercial Area, and Dream Mall in Kaoshiung.
