Taiwan is a tourist destination with great potential. The subtropical island has a widely diversified offer: beaches, mountains, temples, one of the best Chinese art collections of the world, excellent cuisine. But tourism development has not been a priority for the authorities of the country, who are more focused on industrial and manufacturing development.

The new government intends to change this situation increasing the foreign promotion to break the barrier of 2.5 million tourists, most of them from Japan, who visit the island every year.

Without any doubt, there are sufficient products to compete with the main destinations of the region such as Hong Kong, Thailand or Singapore.

The Taiwan Tourism Bureau, responsible for the tourism policy of the island, intends to increase the current foreign promotion budget of 6.3 million dollars and involve hoteliers, travel agents, airlines and tourist companies in the same manner as its competitors in Thailand , Malaysia and Singapore.
