Tourism Bureau cracking down on illegal lodgings

TAIPEI--The Tourism Bureau launched a program Friday to crack down on daily rentals of residential property, a common low-cost option for travelers in Taiwan, in a bid to improve local travel quality.

The bureau is encouraging members of the public to submit pictures and addresses of "day rental suites" they find by offering tipsters a chance to stay in star-rated hotels.

Though cheap, the day rentals have a reputation for substandard security and even criminal activity.

Tourism deputy director-general Wayne Liu said his bureau is moving to improve the situation by making the licensing system for all hotels and bed and breakfasts more streamlined.
