TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The Taiwan Tourism Bureau has been recognized as a 2020 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards gold winner for its video promoting small-town tourism and solo travel in the nation under the category of "Asia-Overall Destinations-Cultural Arts."

The award-winning video, titled, "Taiwan–The Perfect Solo Travel Destination for Culture & Small Towns," was a joint effort of the bureau and U.S. digital media company Black Buddha, according to a bureau news release. The bureau has been promoting small-town tourism in the country since 2017.
