Taiwan is surrounded by sea which boasts rich marine resources. There are six main ports, including Keelung, Hualien, Taichung, Tainan, Kaohsiung and Penghu, all surrounded with natural landscape, historical culture and convenient transportation which directly highlight the island’s unique geographical location and local characteristics.
Being a shining MICE destination within Asia, Taiwan is ready to step into the cruise market and the targeting of the international incentive travel and meeting groups sector. Therefore, Taiwan Tourism Bureau has launched special subsidies including administrative support, tour planning assistance, cultural performances and souvenirs etc. for incoming MICE groups.
Financial grants for overseas cruise ships will be based on the total duration of stay in Taiwan for each ship-call, ranging from US$7,500 toUS$15,000 depending on the berth in Taiwan. What’s more, for the first-time incentive group over 150 pax and above, the Bureau will provide a welcome gala dinner as a token of special welcome bonus!
“We hope our promotion will encourage travelers from the Eastand West to take a cruise trip to Taiwan and experience the extraordinary surprises here.” said the Deputy Director General Liu.
