Travelers planning to go to Taiwan soon still have one day to experience its charm at the Taiwan Hall at the Philippine Travel Agencies Association's Travel Tour Expo 2019 being held until today at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay.
This year, the Taiwan Hall has a handicraft instructor on hand to teach children how to make an exotic Hakka floral water bottle holder and adorable OhBear dough figurine cards.
The famous Goang Shin Paper Mill, located not far from the scenic Sun Moon Lake, has prepared traditional rubbing DIY activities for participants to take home their own heartwarming, one-and-only rubbing handmade paper.
The Taiwan Hall also has VR tours and an AR photo wall where visitors can experience different destinations in Taiwan and have photos taken to keep as a souvenir.
A total of 419,105 visitors from the Philippines visited Taiwan in 2018, up by 44 percent compared to 2017. With the rapid growth in arrivals from the Philippines, this year, for the first time ever, the Taiwan delegation will go to Clark Freeport Zone for a B2B workshop on Feb. 12 at the Royce Hotel Clark.
With its vast tourism resources, Taiwan has repeatedly won international acclaims. Travel website Globe Spots ranked Taiwan 8th in its selection of the top 10 countries to visit in 2019, while Booking.com named Taiwan as the 5th most welcoming place on Earth.
