TAIPEI, Taiwan -- “The Taiwan Tour Bus (台灣觀巴) fleet has been upgraded to a smart-travel model by incorporating multi-language services, free Wi-Fi and an increase to more than 100 travel routes, the Tourism Bureau announced, yesterday. The newest upgrades and services to the Taiwan Tour Bus fleet, which will roll into service starting this month, were announced by the Tourism Bureau under the Ministry of Transportation and Communication at a launch ceremony. Seeing a steady increase of foreign tourists traveling to Taiwan and the popularity of smart devices used by tourists, the Tourism Bureau has hired on-bus tour guides and deployed audio tour services in four languages — Mandarin Chinese, English, Japanese and Korean. Tourists can access their preferred language and learn about Taiwan's attractions and culture with the help of tablets aboard each Taiwan Tour Bus as well”. (China Post, Sept. 3 2015)
This newly-launched service, operated by the Taiwan Bureau of Tourism, takes domestic and international tourists around the most attractive destinations around the picturesque country of Taiwan. Tourists can be picked up at the airports, hotels and other spots, and enjoy a round trip transportation, tour guides, travel insurance….. all services are included!
Acoustiguide Asia is providing our GPS-based Acoustiguide Mobile App for this project, for not less than 92 tour routes (!). Upon boarding, tourists receive their tablets on which they can browse items, read interest stories, listen to fascinating audio content and see their location on the map, at any given time.
