AU visitation to Taiwan passes 55,000 mark as destination welcomes visitor number seven million

Australian visitor numbers to Taiwan have increased again with more than 55,000 visiting the destination for the 11-month period January-November 2012 according to the latest statistics figures released by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau.
The 55,466 total represents a 5.08 per cent increase over the 52,783 number recorded for the same period in 2011.

The 11-month figure was boosted by the 5,424 Australian recorded arrivals in November.

The new figures follow hot on the heels of news that Taiwan has welcomed its seven millionth visitor, Malaysian tourist Lim Swee Chin who arrived at Taiwan's Taoyuan International Airport on 18 December.

Ms Lim's reward for becoming tourist number seven million - two business class round trip tickets from Taiwan's China Airlines and EVA Airways Corporation, three nights at Howard Hotels, Resorts and Suites facilities in Taipei, Kaohsiung and Kenting, two tickets to New Taipei City-based Juming Museum and a Taipei metro ticket from EasyCard Corporation.

Recently addressing  students at the National Kaohsiung University of Hospitality and Tourism Taiwan's President, Ma Ying-jeou said given the exponential growth of the country's tourism visitation it was highly possible Taiwan would be welcoming more than 10 million visitor within the next three years.

"The speed of that growth is unprecedented and is evidence that Taiwan is a potential tourist hot spot," President Ma said.
