Previously, the TTB sent a delegation of 46 representatives from 23 units to Viet Nam for participation in the Viet Nam International Travel Mart (VITM) 2018 in Ha Noi from March 29 to April 1, 2018.
In recent years, the number of Vietnamese tourists visiting Taiwan has skyrocketed. In 2017, the growth rate of Vietnamese visitors to Taiwan reached 94.94%, the highest level among Southeast Asian countries in terms of tourism growth.
During the event, representatives of TTB introduced Taiwanese tourism resources with many attractive destinations such as Mount Alishan, Sun Moon Lake, Qingshui Cliff and the National Palace Museum, as well as specialties of Taiwanese cuisine and culture to travel agents in Viet Nam.
According to Tony Wu, head of the TTB in Bangkok, Taiwanese travel agencies will commit to ensuring and enhancing the quality and diversification of tourism products while creating the most favourable conditions in terms of visa approval for Vietnamese visitors to explore the beauty of this island.
Participants were briefed on Taiwan’s tourist attractions such as Ali mountain (Alishan), Sun Moon lake, Orchid Island (Lanyu) and National Palace Museum, together with its culture and cuisine. Information about incentives on tour prices and visas for Vietnamese tourists was provided as well.
Within the framework of the event, the book entitled “The Beauty of Taiwan” was launched. The book introduces the beauty of Taiwan in various angles, recorded through the lens of artists, writers, journalists and students with multiple levels of emotions.
