weekend, hitting that mark for the fourth consecutive year, a tourism official said Monday.

The 10 millionth arrival was recorded late Sunday but the Tourism Bureau does not yet have the details such as the visitor’s name or nationality, said Huang Yi-ping (黃怡平), a section chief at the bureau’s International Travel Division.

“Since it is the fourth year that we have reached the 10 million mark, there will be no special celebration of that milestone, but rather a special event will be held when the number surpasses last year’s total,” Huang said.

In 2017, Taiwan recorded 10.7 million foreign visitor arrivals, Huang noted, adding that the 10 million milestone was reached two weeks earlier this year.    [FULL  STORY]
