Tsai shares postcard received from student

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Chairperson Tsai Ing-wen shared in her Facebook page Sunday a postcard she received from a Chinese student, who praised her for being an affectionate politician in Taiwan.

In the postcard, the Chinese student also asked Tsai for travel advice as he plans to visit the island next month. The card was mailed directly to the chairperson at the DPP headquarters in Taipei.

Originally from Tienjin province, the sender currently studies at an unnamed university in Australia. He also mentioned his previous travels to New Zealand, Thailand and Singapore, but regretted having missed Taiwan.

The Taiwan visit will be the first leg of his graduation journey, according to his written description.

“People say you are very different from the Chinese leader, an affectionate politician close to the people. What is your travel advice on Taiwan?” he asked.

Tsai didn’t provide him with specifics, but instead welcomed his coming visit, adding that he would be surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery and friendly people.
