TAIPEI--The Dapeng Bay National Scenic Area Administration in Pingtung County, southern Taiwan, said Saturday it will host a series of water fun events starting April 26, including free canoe activities.
Administration officials said the events, part of the efforts to promote an international sailing regatta at Dapeng Bay on May 3 and 4, are aimed at attracting tourists to visit the bay and participate in water fun as summer approaches.
To entice tourists, there will be free rides on canoes and regattas on April 26, 27, May 3, 4, 10 and 11, the first time the administration will hold such programs along with its international sailing regatta campaigns, officials said.
"We want to allow people who are not regatta professionals to also get easy access to water fun," said Hsu Chu-lung, deputy head of the administration.
