How’s the tourism service in Taiwan compare to any other countries in Asia?
My friend’s parents came to visit. Because he had to work all the time, so it turned out to be me and my boyfriend’s job to show them around. We took them all over Taipei, but we didn’t have time for the trip elsewhere. So even they stayed in Taiwan for the one whole month, Taipei is all about taiwan to them.
Because they don’t understand Chinese, it’s just too difficult for them to get to anywhere on their own. So it brought me the idea of starting an on-line tour-guide service. I would like to find people who can speak mid-level English or any other languages to be tour-guides, people like university students, because they’ve got flexible schedule, or anyone who’s interested. But the payment for the tour-guides is goona be low,I don’t mean to make any profits on this, this is gonna be an organization instead of a firm. But about how to cover the expenses, or whether I should work with the government or not, that’s for later, I can’t come up with a solution now.
I’ve done the research, there were only 2 million tourists came to vist last year. There are many reasons for that of course, and I think the language is one of them.
