TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The eighth group of foreigners to participate in “Spend a Night @ Taiwan’s Presidential Building” met President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on Thursday (Dec. 5).

Organized by the General Association of Chinese Culture (GACC), “Spend a Night @ Taiwan’s Presidential Building” welcomed Israeli internet celebrity Nuseir Yassin (Nas) and his partner Alyne Tamir.

According to Nas, an audience can understand a country’s culture in a 60-second video. After his trip to Taiwan, he will publish a video to showcase the beauty of Taiwan to the world, he said.

Meanwhile, Tamir's Facebook page Dear Alyne, which has one million followers, focuses on exploring issues such as women’s rights, animal protection, and environmental conservation. As a vegetarian, Tamir expressed that Taiwan is a veggie-friendly country with a wide variety of vegetarian options — quite rare in Asia.
