TAIPEI (Taiwan News)—The city government of Tainan, the oldest city in Taiwan located
on the southwest coast of the island country, has teamed up with 23 hotel operators in the city to offer tourists who visit the city during weekdays a “free second night stay,” according to the city government.
City Tourism Bureau Director Wang Shih-ssu (王時思) said that visitors usually have problems finding hotel rooms during long holidays in the past, such as Chinese New Year, 228 Peace Memorial Day, and Tomb-Sweeping Day this year. The city government and the hotel operators have launched the “free second night stay” program to encourage tourists to visit Tainan during weekdays (Sunday to Thursday). [FULL STORY]
