Taipei, Jan. 28 (CNA) Taiwan’s central bank has proposed that the government develop tailor-made holiday packages and improve Taiwan’s tourism product in a bid to spur greater interest in domestic travel and help boost the country’s economy.

For example, the government should provide better transportation links to tourist sites and improve access to information about travel in Taiwan, the central bank said.

It also suggested that tailor-made tours for different groups such as seniors or people with disabilities would help attract more domestic travel and said Taiwan’s unique cultural resources should be better promoted.

While more Taiwanese have been traveling domestically and abroad in recent years as a result of generally higher disposable income, they have been spending less on domestic tours, according to the central bank.    [FULL  STORY]
