The Taiwan Tourism Bureau recently hosted a “Cycling Taiwan” event at Robson Square in Vancouver, offering travel agents, tour operators and the general public a unique glimpse of what to expect when experiencing Taiwan’s cities and countryside on two wheels.
Professional cyclist and Olympian, Zach Bell attended the event. Bell represented Canada at the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympic Games and has also raced in Taiwan. Bell commented, “Racing in Taiwan exceeded my expectations. It allowed me to see the sport through a different lens. The diversity of landscapes we encountered was intriguing, and the people were not only excited about the race, but also interested in the cycling. It was evident that cycling is a big part of the Taiwanese culture.”
More than 150 agents and tour operators in the Lower Mainland attended a trade show and dinner hosted by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau to learn more about recent tourism development in the country and meet the major travel partners from Taiwan.
