Taiwan targets 8 million inbound visitors in 2013 with new promotion

Inbound market continues to grow prosperously in Taiwan. International visitor arrivals rose 20 percent in 2012 to 7.3 million, according to Taiwan Tourism Bureau. This impressive growth rate is nearly thrice the global average of 6.8 percent for 2012 projected by the United Nations World Tourism Organization, the bureau said. According to the survey, Taiwan’s tourism revenue in 2012 amounted to US$11.7 billion, marking 6.36 percent growth compared with the previous year.

The Tourism Bureau co-produced with National Geographic Channel to showcase Taiwan’s festivals with series of documentary films and 30-second commercials. The Taiwan Tourism Events calendar presents a full year’s festivals, covering religion, folk customs, sports, and innovative arts and craft activities, allowing domestic and foreign tourists to appreciate cultural happening year-round across the nation.

David W. J. Hsieh, the director-general of the Tourism Bureau, pointed out that The Taiwan Tourism Events calendar has been promoted since last year, intended to draw more inbound tourists to experience the diversity of Taiwan’s festivals around the island. “The documentary films of Taiwan Tourism Events will be shown on NGC, Fox, Star World and other overseas cable networks. Target audiences include 65 million households in 25 Asian countries, such as Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand,” said David Hsieh.

Upcoming event “Taiwan Cycling Festival” of Taiwan Tourism Events

Meanwhile, increasing tourists also accelerate the demand for hotels. So far, the number of rooms grows by 1,266 in Taipei since last year. Several hotels is planned to open in Q4, including the Mandarin Oriental Taipei, which will have 303 rooms and two ball rooms, and the 104-roomed Eslite Hotel, which is owned by one of the largest retail bookstores in Taiwan. Boutique hotels spring up all over the island, aiming to create revenue in FIT and business travel sector, which provide more options for customers. Like Ximen, one of the most popular district in Taipei, now has become a key battleground for five-star hotelier to introducing new brands of boutique hotels, urging hotelier for further renovation in order to satisfy upscale clients. Hotels in Taiwan are expected to gain rapid increase because of tourist boom.
