How do you feel about Taiwan being recognized as the “Most Outstanding Island Destination” at the Travel and Hospitality Awards 2014?
It is indeed an honour and a matter of pride for Taiwan to be recognized as the ‘most outstanding island destination’. We are very pleased that Taiwan is being recognized for its sheer natural beauty and stunning scenery.

What will you describe as the most amazing thing about Taiwan as an Island destination? What do travelers like most about Taiwan?
When the Portugese first sighted Taiwan in 16th century, they called it – Ilha Formosa, the beautiful island! How absolutely right they were! Taiwan is known for its towering mountains and beautiful coasts and other natural assets. In fact, Mother Nature is at her best here. Home to north-east Asia’s tallest mountain - Yu Mountain in Yushan, Taiwan is studded with numerous mountains over 3,000 meters tall. No wonder, Taiwan is lovingly called "Mountainous Island". Taiwan offers the perfect combination of fabulous food, superb nightlife; night markets; hot springs; enriching culture; history and stunning natural beauty. Taiwan is also among the top three safest countries for tourists in Asia (the others are Singapore and Japan); so in Taiwan you can enjoy Asia’s safest and easiest tour experience.

How was the year 2014 for Taiwan Tourism in India?
What is your expectation from India in the New Year? The year 2014 was fantastic for Taiwan in general. Taiwan received a record number of visitors, 9,910,204 to be specificl. Out of this a fairly healthy percentage were Indian tourists, who chose Taiwan for its safety, superb shopping, exciting night markets, culture, heritage and as an ideal family holiday destination.

What new things are you planning to promote Taiwan in India?
We are going to promote Taiwan aggressively in the trade and consumer sectors through advertising, participation in Trade shows, FAM trips, workshops, hoardings in major cities, in-cinema promotions and many other digital and online channels in 2015.
