Regulations regarding the management of mainland residents' travels to Taiwan have been jointly issued by three Chinese central government departments recently.
Travel in Taiwan: Alishan Mountain
According to the new regulations, mainland visitors would be able to tour Taiwan in groups organized by mainland travel agencies designated by government departments.
Vice President of China Travel Service, Chen Wenjie says his agency's travel itineraries are already quite well organized and established, like the 7 and 9-day trips it offers, as well as trip around the island.
"Take the trip around the island for instance, we'll bring tourists to Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, to have a look around the Taipei night market, to taste the snacks, and to enjoy the thermal spring in Hualian County. And of course, we'll never forget to take you to the well-renowned Sun Moon Lake and Alishan Mountain."
It's believed that the measure will guarantee that mainland tourists can travel to Taiwan in a planned, organized and orderly manner.
Additionally, China's National Tourism Administration also adopted a quota system for tourist groups to Taiwan and the quotas will be given to relevant mainland travel agencies who have signed cooperative contracts with their Taiwan counterparts.
