KAOHSIUNG -- To celebrate this year's Children's Day on April 4, the
operator of the double-decker |
tour bus in Kaohsiung City announced Saturday that it will
offer children under 12 years
of age free rides on weekdays
for the entire month of April.
Kaohsiung Bus Group currently has two double-deck buses
running around the city to
introduce its attractions. Tickets are NT$300 (US$9.89) for adults and NT$150 for children and preferential groups.
The company promoted the rides as the nation will soon
enjoy a four-day holiday — to celebrate Children's Day and the Qing Ming or Tomb Sweeping Festival from April 1-4.
To encourage families to take rides on the buses, which
unlike other double-deckers feature an open upper deck,
the company will also hire
people to be mascots and dress
up as lovable bears and monkeys to pose for pictures with tourists.
Meanwhile, Kaohsiung City's Shoushan Zoo will offer free
entry for children under the
age of 12 during the holiday period.
