Kinmen, Feb. 16 (CNA) Visits to Dadan, a Taiwan-held island off the coast of China and a major battleground during the Cold War, proved an instant hit following the start of tour bookings earlier this week.

The 0.79-square-kilometer Dadan Island, which is part of the Republic of China’s (Taiwan) outlying Kinmen County, is set to be opened to tourists for the first time from March 1.

The number of visitors will be limited to 150 per day and admission tickets will cost NT$1,500 (US$48.67), including the return ferry trip, electric shuttle bus rides and group tour guide services, while Kinmen residents will be charged a discounted price of NT$750, according to Kinmen County Tourism Department.

However, Chinese nationals, including those living in Hong Kong and Macau, will not be permitted to visit the island.    [FULL  STORY]
