The “Taiwan Fun on the Tropic of Cancer” series activities will officially kick off on June 19, bringing together many businesses from different industries to offer discounted merchandises and services for activity participants, Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau announced Thursday.
“This is the fourth year of the series activities and is about time people join us in the 11 events to be held around Taiwan in the summertime,” said Wayne Liu, Deputy Director General at the Tourism Bureau. “We want people to go out and have fun instead of staying at home, turning on air conditioning and watching TV. So the Tourism Bureau brings in the element of the Tropic of Cancer that bisects seven countries and cities and five national scenic areas in Taiwan.”
In planning the Tropic of Cancer series activities, the Tourism Bureau has teamed up with four counties and cities and six national scenic area administrations as well as a variety of businesses in the tourism industry, including hotels, to offer price discounts. [FULL STORY]
