Kinmen attracts Chinese travelers with its historical stories

Kinmen attracts Chinese travelers with its historical stories

The number of tourists has largely increased after the landing visa has been provided to the Chinese travelers. Kinmen County Magistrate Chen Fu-hai indicated that there are many interesting stories about the island, and tourists from China and Taiwan are very welcome to visit.

Chen thinks that there are many historical stories about the Shanhou Folk Culture Village and the gun position. Especially the Mt. Lion Howitzer Front plays an important role in Taiwan’s marine defense. If the tourists only come to Kinmen to look around, it would be regrettable, Chen said. Due to the "mini three links," the trip between Kinmen and Xiamen has become very convenient. The opening of the duty free shops and the old military fortifications are both very popular among the Chinese tourists.

The outlaying islands visa-on-arrival policy has attracted a lot of tourists to visit Kinmen. The Chinese tourists only have to apply for the pass in Xiamen, and they will be allowed to take the boat to Kinmen. There will be 36 boat trips between the two locations every day in summer, and now at least 100 tourists visits Kinmen every day, helping to inject new blood into the island's tourism and retail sectors.
