Taiwan is a fascinating destination boasting a friendly populace, stunning scenery and a rich cultural heritage.

However, as a tourist attraction, it is one of Asia’s best kept secrets.

The new advertising campaign is designed to inspire more UK travellers to consider Taiwan as a place they have to visit.

The new campaign follows a strong 2015 for Taiwan, which saw an increase in UK visitor arrivals.

Johnson Wang, director of the European branch office of the Taiwan Tourism Bureau, commented: “Last year saw a steady increase in visitor arrival figures for the destination and we expect similar growth for this year.

“With this new high-impact strategic campaign, alongside our ongoing calendar of world class events, new hotel openings and the opening of a new branch of the famed National Palace Museum, we look forward to further driving visitor numbers and increasing the value of tourism for the benefit for the destination.”
