Taipei, Nov. 2 (CNA) A couple from Hungary who were picked to take part in a program to stay overnight at the Presidential Office hailed their first encounter with Taiwan and promised to help promote the country in Europe.
"It's amazing," Robert Revesz, who is a managing director for international relations at Hungary-based travel media Turizmus, told CNA on Thursday after arriving in Taiwan with his wife a day earlier.
According to Revesz, he learned of the program through a Taiwanese friend. As a veteran globetrotter, he had visited more than 400 cities in over 50 countries, but this was his first visit to Taiwan.
"The project itself was very interesting for us," he said. "The idea of promoting Taiwan using the hundred-year-old presidential office building and the opportunity to stay here, I think it's amazing. So we were very excited when I heard about the opportunity." [FULL STORY]
