Its director Tony Wu said Taiwan was well known as a top tourist destination among non-Muslims although the country actually had a wide-range of Muslim environment.


“Taiwan has a Muslim population of 600,000 that migrated from China. Most of them have opened Muslim restaurants and Taiwan Tourism Bureau has upgraded Muslim-friendly facilities.Up to now over 100 hotels and restaurants in Taiwan have halal certification.


“So, food is not a problem for Muslim tourists,” he told a press conference at the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) Headquarters. Also present during the press conference was MATTA chief executive officer, Phua Tai Neng.


To welcome more Malaysians to exprience the beauty of Taiwan, he said TTBKL was offering a new package known as ‘Unsung Heroes Special Deals’ during the MATTA fair.


“This promotion is to express our thanks to the designation of public staff in Malaysia. This specialised promotion is offered to on duty or retired public service staff.

“For example, healthcare professionals, police, firefighters, teachers, media, differently-able persons, government staff and mosque administrative staff.

“Qualified personnel are entitled to an accommodation deal of ‘a night for a night’ where you purchase a night stay and you will receive another free night stay,” he said.


Wu said Taiwan was the best place to visit as the country has beautiful scenery, world-renowned fine food, friendly enthusiastic people and many theme parks, which could be the best option for a family holiday.
