ITB Berlin – Penghu Joins Ranks of the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches

April 8, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

The Most Beautiful Bays in the World President Galip Gur presented a membership certificate to the Taiwan Tourism Bureau on March 7 at the Taiwan Pavilion during ITB Berlin, the world’s biggest travel fair.

The Most Beautiful Bays in the World is a non-governmental organization founded in 1997 by Jean Manquat and headquartered in the city of Vannes, central France. The organization’s mission is to promote the protection of the world’s natural and cultural bay resources. The group has 39 bay area members from 30 countries, including San Francisco Bay in the United States, Qingdao Bay in mainland China, and Halong Bay in Vietnam.

Taiwan’s Penghu County came onto the organization’s radar due to years of efforts by the county to promote natural bay resource protection. In 2010, the organization invited Penghu, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Taipei Representative Office in France, to submit a membership application as representative of Taiwan. Penghu’s unique marine geology and landscape, deep culture and history, and distinctive bay features greatly impressed the other member states of the organization. After three years of efforts, the membership procedures were completed.

Visitors from around the world are warmly welcomed to visit Penghu and experience the island’s sincere and friendly human touch, rich variety of delicious seafood, sunshine, beaches, sea and scenic beauty.
