The chief executive director of the foundation, Jessica Huang (黃莉惠), said that more and more international tourists have been attracted to Taiwan thanks to the country's multicultural dynamic and the uniqueness of its cuisine.
“The foundation has been using the internet to help promote Taiwan's food to the world,” Huang said, “and it has been very effective.”
According to Huang, the foundation's Facebook page for the event attracted 20,000 fans within a month.
One of the Japanese bloggers, Sai Rie (西理惠), said she was really impressed by the humanity and kindness of Taiwanese people.
“At this trip,” Sai Rei said, “I found that every Taiwanese restaurant owner insists on maintaining the quality of the food they sell.”
The other Japanese blogger, Terada Naoko (寺田直子), said that when walking on the streets in Taipei, she discovered a passion that Tokyo residents have forgotten.
“I am glad to promote what I learned and discovered in Taiwan through the Internet to the world,” Terada Naoko said.
The foundation has also planned several folk games for tourists to experience, helping them better understand Taiwan's culture and foods.
