America’s most fun filled Travel and Adventure Show took place March 5th at the Santa Clara Convention Center! This year, Taiwan Tourism Bureau in San Francisco partnered up with China Airlines, EVA Airways, Air & Sea Travel, Lion Travel, Marisan Travel along with Taiwanese food companies Comebuy Drinks and Hsin Tung Yang to showcase a brand new Oh! Bear themed Taiwan Pavilion. The new booth design features an inviting and comfortable environment for visitors to freely inquire useful travel information.
According to Ms. Sylvia Yu, Director of Taiwan Tourism Bureau in San Francisco, 2015 is a fruitful year for Taiwan Tourism. The arrival of the 10 millionth tourist marked a milestone in Taiwan’s tourism sector and altogether contributed NT$445 billion (US$13.56 billion) to Taiwan’s foreign exchange income. This success only indicates a new beginning of the ongoing marketing effort to promote Taiwan Tourism. Taiwan Tourism is highly praised by the international press including Lonely Planet featuring Taiwan as one of the “Best valued destinations for 2015”, “Where to go in 2016: Top 16 up-and-coming destinations” by CNN Travel, and “12 emerging travel destinations that you have to visit in 2016” by Business Insider. Taiwan Tourism Bureau caters to different tourists' needs and partners with quality local travel tour operators to provide customized travel packages. These tour products feature the Bureau's “Time for Taiwan” 6 major tourism themes, bringing tourists exciting experiences of Taiwanese culture, LOHAS, shopping, gourmet foods, ecological systems, and intoxicating romantic scenery. They are also designed along 4 major events such as the Taiwan Lantern Festival, Taiwan Summer Solstice 235, Taiwan Cycling Festival, and Taiwan Hot Spring & Fine-Cuisine Carnival. Backpackers make the best use of the Tour Taiwan Facebook fan page and online travel agencies to plan their travels utilizing the “Taiwan Tourism Events” calendar or app, Taiwan Tour Bus, Taiwan Fun Cards and Taiwan Tourist Shuttle Bus services. The goal is to make Taiwan a fun, convenient and friendly tourist destination."
Taiwan Tourism Bureau arranged a series of Taiwan themed activities. At the Global Beats Stage, there was a Taiwanese music performance with traditional instruments. Event goers enjoyed the authentic bubble milk tea and pineapple pastry at the Taiwan Pavilion, received limited edition hand crafted Monkey lanterns giveaway, and met the Taiwan Oh!Bear as well as taking pictures with the giant Xiao Long Bao display! As grand prizes at the booth raffle, China Airlines and EVA Air both gave away two sets of round trip tickets from San Francisco to Taipei!
