Tourists who arrange to visit Taitung at the last minute during the holiday will have to keep their fingers crossed that they will find a place to stay.
Bookings for accommodations in the area were halfway sold-out months ago, according to Taitung Tourism Association head Pan Kuei-lan (潘貴蘭). She added that locals from the hospitality industry had told her they were nearly at capacity and expected to be full shortly, CNA reported.
Taitung Commercial Hotel Union Chairperson Lee Shu-cha (李數奼) said that accommodation in Taitung City, Green Island, and Orchid Island is nearly sold-out and the same is true for ferry services between Taitung and Green Island for the first three days of October. She added that latecomers can only call and test their luck to see if there are cancellations.
