  • What is it that makes foreigners want to shout "Bravo!" when they experience Taiwan?
    This year the Taiwan Tourism Bureau has produced short promotional videos centered on six different themes, using a quasi-documentary method to present the actual experiences of foreign travelers in Taiwan. The films express how the island affects foreign tourists so much that their only response is, "Bravo!"
