The Taiwan Tourism Bureau is planning to build on rising UK visitor numbers by highlighting the island’s strengths as a holiday destination at forthcoming travel trade events this year.

The tourism body will be attending Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) quiz nights and will have a presence at the Association of National Tourist Offices and Representatives (ANTOR) Meets the Trade event taking place in London next month.

During these events agent attendees will have the chance to learn more about Taiwan’s unique selling points, see suggested itineraries and have any questions they have about the destination answered.

This year, as part of its 'Year of Bay Tourism 2018' initiative, the tourist board will be raising awareness of the country’s marine tourism assets, highlighting Taiwan’s lesser-known collection of topographically diverse off-shore islands which offer white sand beaches, opportunities for snorkelling and scuba diving among vibrant coral reefs and tropical fish, along with the country’s history and colourful culture.
