TPEDOIT Sets up Booth at Tourism Fair in Dubai

To cultivate the image of Taipei as a tourist destination among travelers from the Middle East, the Department of Information and Tourism took part in the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) in Dubai between April 25 and 28.
The agency will introduce three major tour routes, including “Taipei Classics,” “Shopping and Fashion,” and “Natural Landscape” for tourists, as well as highlighting the theme of “Hot Spring Tours.”
Now in its 23rd year, the ATM is an international tourism event attracting related businesses from around the world. In 2015, over 26,000 buyers and 2,800 participating vendors from 86 countries attended the show, creating approximately USD 24 billion in business transactions.
This year is the first time TPEDOIT participated in the showcase. Spotlighting “Hot Spring Tours,” the agency seeks to attract potential visitors to the city’s natural resources and unique geographical environment. Taipei City’s natural hot springs surrounded by various resorts and a national park are located less than 30 minutes in travel time from the city center.
In addition, Taipei’s medical cosmetology is also one of its strengths, boasting top technology at affordable prices performed by friendly staff. For those who enjoy shopping, there are commercial districts of various scales, as well as major department stores such as Shin-kong Mitsukoshi and Taipei 101 shopping center.
Taipei also seeks to boost its profile as “Muslim-friendly Taipei.” According to the 2016 Global Muslim Travel Index released my MasterCard, Taiwan is ranked 7th in the chart of non-OIC destinations – placed higher than Japan and the United States, just behind Singapore, Thailand, and England.
