Two Instagramers from Thailand visited Taiwan last month to participate in a project nicknamed “spend a night at Taiwan’s Presidential Office Building.” The young couple also visited Keelung on Nov. 21-24 to experience the local culture and enjoy local delights under the direction of Keelung Mayor Lin Yu-chang, who acted as a guide for the occasion in hopes of boosting tourism. The number of tourist arrivals from Thailand reached nearly 280,000 this year, a year-on-year growth of more than 30 percent.
So far, only ten groups have spent a night at Taiwan’s Presidential Office Building. Among them, Tone and Pupey, who participated under the name “Ibreak2travel,” are very popular in Thailand where they were ranked among top-three in the Google keyword ranking list in the Thai language. Most of their videos center on travel around the world. Although the videos about Taiwan have not been released yet, the other videos created by the team of influencers are beautifully filmed and edited.
