TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2016 /CNW/ -- On September 15, 2016, the Taiwan Tourism Bureau hosted its #TaiwanNowBoarding cocktail reception at Cambria Gallery in downtown Toronto. More than 140 media and trade partners united to learn about the cultural and culinary practices that make up Asia's vibrant heart. With five weekly direct flights out from Toronto to Taiwan, selected contest winners departed to Taiwan immediately after the event for a weekend getaway.
Chosen as one of the top-16 up-and-coming destinations in 2016 by CNN, Taiwan proved nothing short of spectacular. At the #TaiwanNowBoarding event, guests enjoyed authentic Taiwanese cuisine provided by Kanpai Restaurant while tasting the signature bubble tea from Chatime.
The highlight of the night was the contest where guests used the hashtag #TaiwanNowBoarding for a chance to win a free instant trip to Taiwan with EVA Airways. Immediately following the event, the winners Ryan Woods and Michael Wong were chauffeured by limousine to Toronto Pearson International Airport to take the direct flight and spend the weekend in Taipei. The trip included a two-night stay in a luxurious fivestar hotel and a half-day tour of Taipei. For following winners' journey in Taiwan: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKnOBNq9mz5uaNd_ieKu64A.
