TAIPEI (Taiwan News)–Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau on Tuesday released a 15-minute micro film promoting the Penghu archipelago as an ideal destination for traveling light all year round.
The archipelago, located in the middle of Taiwan Strait, consists of 90 islands and islets and collectively forms Penghu County of Taiwan.Tourism Bureau Deputy Director-General Wayne Liu (劉喜臨) said the film was shot from the perspectives of three tourists–a food blogger, a cyclist and an ecological photographer. The film shows the three tourists taking different trips for different purposes to different places on the archipelago, including alleys in cities, fishing markets, old houses, beaches, sea embankment, and natural basalt formations; watching locals engaging in traditional economic activities such as fishing and drying squids and noodles under the sun; and tasting local foods. The film also shares the thoughts of the three about their trips in Penghu.
The Tourism Bureau said the Penghu National Scenic Area Administration will organize a series of activities from September 23 to the end of October to coincide existing sporting events taking place in the county to attract more people to Penghu by traveling light. [FULL STORY]
