The Taiwan Tourist Museum, jointly developed with about 80 organizations including the Taiwan Tourism Association, uses the concept of “Taiwan’s ‘Like’ = Good!” to introduce tea art, handicrafts, and northern and southern regions to attract tourists. Various stage events such as the appearance of the mascot “Obea” and quizzes are also held. This is a popular area and many passers-by stop by.
Another surprise is that “Obea” will greet you at the entrance of the pavilion. You can also take pictures with performers in puppet costumes.
A display corner is specially set up in the exhibition hall. You can admire Taiwanese tea art, clay crafts and traditional textiles of aborigines. At the clay work booths, artisans improvise creations that will give you a warm welcome with their ingenuity and loveliness. Colored clay also incorporates mascots and various animals. I heard that they used to prepare raw things as offerings, but recently the demand for clay crafts has increased.
A traditional textile performance by the Atayal Aboriginal people will also be held. We also introduce tour programs where you can experience the original life.
At the Taiwanese tea art stall, you can also taste oolong tea. Even a small amount has a strong aroma and relaxing effect. Just one sip and the deliciousness will take your breath away. In addition, at the booth of “Taoyuan Tourist”, which retains the memory of Japanese culture, there are tea gifts with stickers posted on Facebook or Instagram.
Taiwanese cuisine is also one of the joys of travel, and many shops in the pavilion offer tastings of their proud menus. At the neighboring Taitung county government booth, visitors can try pineapple cakes and turmeric-preserved roselle, a typical Taiwanese souvenir. In addition, the “Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Republic of China – Taiwan Food Tour” which brings together “Taiwanese delicacies” will also exhibit recommended banana and orange desserts. In addition, many hotels in the northern and southern regions also offer special discounts to attract tourists who intend to travel to Taiwan.
