Kaohsiung lays on free bus rides for kids

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.
