Taiwan Tourism opens Australian visitor information centre

Tourism Taiwan has officially opened a visitor information centre in the heart of Sydney.

Established in partnership with Asia-Pacific agency Switch Digital, the centre has been created to better service the growing demand of Australian travellers and support local travel professionals, providing information on industry presence and guides on travelling to Taiwan.

Taiwan has received over 10 million tourists over the last four years. Australian tourists accounted for over 100,000 tourists in 2018, with a 60 per cent increase in Aussie travellers arriving year-on-year in April 2019 alone.

Taiwan will also feature prominently in travel and dive expos across Australia, and is offering tailored training sessions to major travel groups over the next 12 months.

At the information centre’s official opening, Dr Trust H.J. Lin, director at the Taiwan Tourism Bureau of New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, India, and the Middle East, said: “We are very happy to open our new information centre in Australia.
