Ever since Taiwan granted Filipinos visa-free entry last year (on a trial period until July 31), the small island nation has been a favorite destination among Philippine passport holders. There’s just so much to see in this country.
And today, our very own Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach shows us another way to explore Taiwan—on two wheels.
Wurtzbach, together with other high-profile influencers, are featured on Taiwan on Two Wheels (www.taiwanon2wheels.com), a website built by Fox Sports and powered by Fox Content Labs which aims to help tourists easily research and plan a cycling trip to Taiwan.
“We’re encouraging everyone to come and explore Taiwan on two wheels—from pro cyclers to those who prefer to take it slow,” says Joe Chou, director general of the Taiwan Tourism Bureau.
The online hub supports Taiwan Tourism Bureau in driving more cycle tourism to Taiwan by providing everything a cycle-happy visitor could need, including English-language bike routes, rental information, and packing advice.
Wurtzbach bikes around Jiufen, a mountain town in northeastern Taiwan, as Olympic gold medalist Owain Doull, Bollywood actress and philanthropist Evelyn Sharma, former captain of England Rugby 7’s team Ollie Phillips, and travel show host Edward Russell explore other locations.
Together, these celebrities make up a unique collective of influencers capable of engaging a wide range of tourists—leisure peddlers, bicycle enthusiasts, nature lovers. These stars, on camera, explore Taiwan on bike and show the variety of cycle exploration on offer in the country.
“Fox Sports has been able to highlight the wide variety of cycle adventures in Taiwan through a diverse group of people,” enthuses Chou.
