Overseas Couples Make Romantic Pledges on Top of the World 
TAIPEI, Taiwan--(Business Wire)--
In response to the global economic recession and economic pressures of various
kinds, the Taiwan Tourism Bureau is planning a wide range of new travel products
that focus on the island`s high-quality, diversified, and super-value offerings
to attract more international tourists and help them get the most out of their
travel budget. 

With promotions such as "Honeymoon Tour" and "Wedding Photo Shoot Tour" being
offered, Taiwan`s Tourism Bureau is holding a "Love 101" event at Taipei 101
today (Friday May 22, 2009) to help create a romantic experience for overseas
tourists in the world`s tallest building. 

Taiwan has become a hot destination for tourists from Southeast Asia, many of
whom like to visit our island and take pictures at romantic spots, especially
Taipei 101, a landmark appreciated for its grandeur and romantic ambience. 

To attract even more visitors to Taiwan, the Taiwan Tourism Bureau earlier this
year kicked off the "Love 101" campaign, inviting couples in Hong Kong, Macao,
Singapore and Malaysia to submit "vows of love" on the Internet. Six winning
entries from these areas have come to Taiwan to participate in this event and
present their works of love. Tourists who are participating in the "Honeymoon"
or "Wedding Photo Shoot" package tours in Taiwan are also eligible to
participate in the "Love 101" event today. Participants will receive a romantic
dinner at Taipei 101 and have a chance to win a diamond ring in a prize drawing.

In addition to this event, from now until the end of the year, there will be
lots of other romance-themed events in Taiwan, including the 2009 North Coast
Wedding Photography Contest, Love at Sun Moon Lake Honeymoon Activity, Alishan
Wedding Bliss Activity and Austronesian Ethnic Wedding Activity. We believe all
of these events will shine the spotlight on Taiwan as one of the world`s most
romantic places to visit.
