TAIPEI–The Taipei city government said yesterday the microblog it uses to publicize the latest travel information for individual Chinese tourists has drawn more than 30,000 online followers one week after its launch.
“Fun Taipei,” (趣台北) a website that allows users to exchange short messages on Taipei-related tourism information, has drawn tremendous feedback from Chinese netizens (網友), said project supervisor Ting Hao-yuen.
On June 7, the first day when the website was put online, the city government received more than 100 messages inquiring about travel in Taipei.
For instance, user Dorayaki asked, “I heard that people in Taipei like to use Easycard. How much does it cost?”
With statistics recording 94 percent of Chinese group tourists visiting Taipei during their travel in Taiwan, Ting said the city has been eyeing the benefits of Web-based tourism campaigns.
