Another year, another milestone for Taiwan’s tourism industry. On December 20, 2015, representatives of the Taiwan Tourism Bureau welcomed Christopher Manuele from California, who became the year’s 10 millionth international visitor, at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

The software engineer, coming to Taiwan to visit his wife’s grandmother, was showered with about 100 gifts, worth around NT$1 million in total, including round-trip business-class tickets from Taiwan to any destination in the world, a foldable bike, and a tablet computer.

10 millionth international visitor

The rise in visitor numbers over the last 10 years for Taiwan has been impressive; thanks to the concerted efforts of the central and local governments in partnership with the private sector, international-visitor numbers have risen from 3 million in 2005 to 10 million in 2015, with staggering growth of about 1 million in each of the past few years.
