TAIPEI (Taiwan News)—The city government of Tainan, the oldest city in Taiwan located on the southwest coast of the island country, has teamed up with 23 hotel operators in the city to offer tourists who visit the city during weekdays a “free second night stay,” according to the city government.

City Tourism Bureau Director Wang Shih-ssu (王時思) said that visitors usually have problems finding hotel rooms during long holidays in the past, such as Chinese New Year, 228 Peace Memorial Day, and Tomb-Sweeping Day this year. The city government and the hotel operators have launched the “free second night stay” program to encourage tourists to visit Tainan during weekdays (Sunday to Thursday).

Participating hotels offer a great variety of rooms and prices to accommodate visitors with different budget needs, Wang said. In addition, visitors who accept the offer are also entitled to enter a prize draw to win one of 20 flight tickets (10 round-trip tickets from Tainan to Osaka and 10 round-trip tickets from Tainan to Hong Kong) and other prizes.

Early summer is the best time to visit Tainan and one night stay is just not enough to discover Tainan slowly and savor it leisurely, she said.     

Tainan is most famous for its abundant historical attractions and gourmet snacks.
