Taiwan Targets Silver Haired Tourists From Mainland

Janice Lai, the director of Taiwan Tourism Bureau, has told local media that the bureau will plan special tourist routes for senior tourists, especially retirees from the mainland, together with Taiwan's tourism and hotel practitioners.

According to Lai, the new routes will make a more relaxed journey for the elderly by "walking slower, eating softer food, staying in better hotels, and looking a little deeper".

Lai told local media that there would be two routes at first. The west route would include the Lin Yutang House, Zhang Xueliang's Former Residence, Taipei 101, Sun Moon Lake, and Alishan, while the east route would cover Teresa Teng's grave, Taroko National Park, Chihpen, San Xian Tai, and the Pacific view along Taiwan's east coast.
