Taiwan Tourism Bureau launches “Best of Taste Taiwan” in North America


LOS ANGELES, CA – The Taiwan Tourism Bureau has launched its “Best of Taste Taiwan” campaign in North America, which will run through June 2016.

Taiwan, located in the “Heart of Asia,” is renowned for its award-winning cuisine, historical attractions, and stunning natural scenery, making it the perfect destination for both long-haul and stopover visits to Asia. In 2015, Taiwan welcomed more than 10 million international visitors.

The Taiwan Tourism Bureau produced its brand-new travel show, “Best of Taste Taiwan: 10 Things You Must Do,” highlighting an array of activities throughout the country — from signature experiences to local secrets: visiting the iconic Taipei 101, the tallest building in Taiwan; savoring local cuisine in a bustling night market and at the world-famous Din Tai Fung restaurant; navigating the island aboard Taiwan’s easily accessible transportation system; experiencing natural wonders at Taroko Gorge; wandering through the nostalgic gold-mining town of Jiufen, and much more. This 30-minute special is hosted by Mike Siegel, an acclaimed television presenter and host of the popular “Travel Tales” podcast.

The Taiwan Tourism Bureau hosted the premiere of “Best of Taste Taiwan” in Los Angeles, Vancouver, New York, and Houston throughout the month of April. Cocktail receptions attracted more than 100 guests in each city, including high-profile media, travel influencers, tour operators, and travel agents.

For two weeks after the premiere event, moviegoers will enjoy a 30-second sneak peek of “Best of Taste Taiwan” at select theaters. The complete program will air on CNBC on Saturday, April 23rd at 12:30 pm PST/ 3:30pm EST.

Between May 1 and June 30, the Taiwan Tourism Bureau will launch its “Best of Taste Taiwan” Facebook campaign that includes giveaways of free trips to Taiwan. You can enter by visiting the “Tanya Loves Taiwan” Facebook page for a chance to win round-trip tickets to Taiwan.
