Taipei ITF's USA Pavilion attracted a swarm of people yesterday, as musicians and dancers from Guam and the state of Idaho performed live music to spice up American travel.
Governor Matt Mead of the U.S. state of Wyoming attended the opening of Taipei ITF yesterday, encouraging more people from Taiwan to visit his state that conveys a "cowboy spirit."
Ever since Taiwan received U.S. visa-waiver status in November 2012, the resulting increase in travel to the U.S. has prompted airlines to increase capacity. The U.S. saw a higher-than-average 16-percent increase with 469,568 trips in 2012 and the prospects for this year are more than promising.
On the first day of Taipei ITF, the popular summer destination of Guam was portrayed as a spot "that combines nature and modern beauties," while winter destination Alaska was depicted as the "aurora capital of the world."
As one of the most successful travel fairs in Asia, the 2013 Taipei International Travel Fair (Taipei ITF) is no doubt an important gate for tourists and travel agencies to discover America. With the strongest showing ever, the USA Pavilion is ready to answer all your questions about the country in both English and Mandarin.
