TO invite more Filipino to visit their country, the Taiwan Tourism Bureau (TTB) joined a two-day travel mart held from July 26 and 27 at the SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City. Setting up the “Taiwan Travel Product Sales Exhibition,” the bureau prepared activities that excite and interest adventurous travelers.
Before the official travel mart, TTB first held the Taiwan Tourism Workshop on July 24 at the Diamond Hotel Manila to prepare the 19 participating travel agencies from Taiwan and the Philippines. At the workshop, the participants pledged support to Taiwan’s tourism efforts by promoting the country as a top travel destination.
They were Cebu Pacific Air, China Airlines, Eva Air, Philippine Airlines, Jeron Travel & Tours Corporation, Pan Pacific Travel Corporation, Canadian Travel, North Star International Travel Inc., Las Palmas Travel, Renaissance Travel & Tours Inc., Uni-Orient Travel Inc., Everbright Travel & Tours Inc., Travel Warehouse Inc., Skynet Travel Corporation, Ark Travel Express Inc., and Interlink Travel, among others.
At the travel mart, travel agencies and business operators put together various travel packages to sell at the venue, with four big highlights to reward Filipinos for supporting Taiwan.
The country’s good food, shopping, and other elements of interest were also introduced to potential visitors. This provided information about various travel products and available discounts to Filipino travelers.
Besides this, PeopleArt was also featured. The group is a Taiwanese opera troupe that has performed overseas with a distinctive cultural flavor. This was followed by the presentation of the highly skilled and internationally renowned Taiwanese magician Mike Chao. Finally, performances by diablo masters MHD Crew were shown.
According to Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) Minister Samson Chang, the tourism workshop, together with other events, “would further develop and strengthen tourism exchange between our two countries in the coming years.”
