Taipei, Jan. 13 (CNA) Jincheng Township in the island county of Kinmen has been selected as one of Taiwan's 30 classic towns for 2020, the county government said Monday.

Jincheng is the second town in Kinmen to have received the designation after Lieyu was selected as a classic town in a poll conducted by Taiwan's Tourism Bureau in 2019, said Lee Cheng-chih (李誠智), the head of the township.

The poll is part of the Small Town Ramble 2.0 campaign which comprises 20 mountainous communities and 10 small towns with unique cultural and lifestyle characteristics.
