Taiwan's tropical vibe featured on National Geographic's Channel

March 12 (CNA) Taiwan's tropical vibe will be featured on the National Geographic's Family Channel later this month amid the Tourism Bureau's latest efforts to work with international leisure programs to promote Taiwan. "Taste of the Tropics: Taiwan" will premier across Asia and Australia March 20 on the National Geographic Channel and NatGeo People Channel, featuring Taiwan's location on the Tropic of Cancer, according to the bureau on Thursday. Presented by Harry Yuan, also host of National Geographic's martial arts program Kung Fu Motion, the new show will introduce three counties in Taiwan where the Tropic of Cancer passes. "Hualien, Chiayi and outlying Penghu will appear in the program, while their gourmet food and special outdoor activities such as canoeing are touted," a company spokesperson said. "The launch of the program also marks the Tourism Bureau's ambition to promote Taiwan's diversity and unique lifestyles," said bureau Deputy Director-General Wayne Liu (???). "Hopefully through the joint recommendation from us and the National Geographic Channel, more international tourists could be attracted to Taiwan, a green gem on the Tropic of Cancer," Liu said during the program's launch ceremony on Thursday. The bureau just announced the previous day it has worked with the Travel & Living Channel (TLC) to feature presenters from around the world in the latest travel series--"Fun Taiwan."
