Taipei has been named the best leisure destination in Asia for the fourth straight year, in a survey conducted by the American magazine, Global Traveler.
Taiwan has also been ranked second in the "Best Adventure Destination, International" category, after India.
According to Brad Shih, the director of the Los Angeles office of Taiwan's Tourism Bureau, the survey reflects Taiwan's tourism assets which have been well received by the American public.
Shih says based on conversations with US travel agencies, he believes travellers will be more inclined to take individual trips or with smaller tour groups in the future, as the world slowly recovers from the coronavirus pandemic.
Global Traveler's 2021 Leisure Lifestyle Award list was compiled based on the results of a survey conducted among the magazine's subscribers and online readers.
