Taiwan’s versatile nature, rich history, and local spe-cialty foods are the catalysts of Taiwan’s 368 charming small towns. Taiwan Tour-ism Bureau selected seven incredible small towns, including Beitou in Taipei, Sa-nyi in Miaoli, Lukang in Changhua, Meinong in Kaohsiung, Wutai in Pingtung, Jhihben in Taitung, Ruisui in Hualien, and Dongshan in Yilan, to promote through a fun and educational engaging booth game. It will be an amazing fami-ly-fun weekend for everyone to enjoy.

“Taiwan is an island well known for its high mountains and complex geologic sceneries. Along with desirable weather and cultural influences, Taiwan produces bounty of vegetables, fruits, and a variety of seafood, all of which are enticing options for food lovers. Every small town in Taiwan is blessed with different ap-peals. For example, Dadaocheng embodies a combination of Hokkien, Western, and Baroque style vintage street houses perfect for architecture enthusiasts to im-merse themselves in. Internationally recognized ‘Slow City’ – Sanyi in Miaoli – is a must-visit area for nature and woodcraft lovers. Not only is the DIY wooden duck a great painting activity for adults and kids alike, but also a memorable souvenir to take home. For hot spring lovers, make sure to visit Jhihben Hot Springs and explore the indigenous villages and Luye Highland Tea Farm”, shared Brad Shih, Director of Taiwan Tourism Bureau’s Los Angeles Office.
