TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The Taiwan Tourism Bureau Singapore office has launched a new carriage design that looks like a traditional, tiled, Taiwanese bathroom on Singapore's North-East metro line.

The theme of the promotion is “Taiwan — Small Town.” In the metro carriage, passengers can experience the look of a traditional Taiwanese bathroom similar to those typical of old houses in the countryside.

When stepping into the metro carriage, commuters are welcomed by “Taiwan-style slippers" in blue, red, and white. The doormat says “Welcome to Taiwan.”

The carriage design creatively adopts images of tiling, iron bars on windows, and plastic ducks to achieve that old-style ambience. The window design features traditional ‘70s patterns such as clouds, plum blossom, crosses, and diamond shapes, the bureau said.

The Taiwanese promotion will run until Nov. 11 on the North-East line (Nel Train). Visit the website or Facebook page for more information.
