Taipei, Nov. 21 (CNA) A Thai couple who spent the night inside Taiwan's Presidential Office Building, said they were impressed by the wall-less compound, noting that the 100-year-old structure reflects the openness of Taiwan's government to the people.

"We saw how close the place is to the people," said Kanisorn Pringthongfoo and Varaporn Rasmeekajorndej, Thai vloggers who operate the travel website ibreak2travel, on Thursday.

The ibreak2travel website won the Best Informative Blog Award, organized by hotel and flight booking site Traveloka, in 2017.

There are usually large walls around prime ministerial residences or VIP offices, making them forbidden areas, Pringthongfoo told CNA in an interview after the two Thai nationals spent a night in a guest room inside the Presidential Office Building. "But here, it's open," he said.
