Discounted bus tours now available around Taiwan

Taipei, May 25 (CNA) Local tour bus operators and the Directorate General of Highways are offering 25 promotional bus tours at steep discounts this summer to promote travel around Taiwan. Kuo-Kuang Motor Transport, for instance, is offering a one-day package taking tourists to Wanli and Jinshan districts in northern Taiwan for NT$199 (US$6.48), about 33 percent cheaper than normal. Nantou Bus is offering five different packages featuring the scenic Sun Moon Lake in Nantou County, with the steepest discount 34 percent off the normal fare. Another tour from Taichung to Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village, an amusement park in Nantou County highlighting the culture of Taiwan's indigenous tribes, is being offered for NT$1,020, inclusive of transportation and a ticket to the theme park. The discounted packages described above will be available until the end of the 2015. Others among the 25 promotional tours on offer will run until the end of August, September or October. In the outlying county of Kinmen -- a former front line against Chinese communist aggression -- a discounted tour available at NT$90 will show tourists around the Guningtou Battle Museum, the Shuangli Wetlands Nature Center and other scenic spots dating back to the wartime period. The public is also encouraged to vote for their 10 favorite routes starting Monday. Participants will be eligible for a lucky draw with such prizes as packaged tour tickets, smartphones, tablet computers and convenience store vouchers. The vote will end July 3.
