The Indian outbound cruise traveller can now avail of temporary entry permit in Taiwan, free of cost (FOC), if they take the Star Cruise to the Taiwanese port cities of Kaohsiung and Taichung. The ship will be at port in both the cities of Kaohsiung and Taichung, so travellers can enjoy excursions where the passengers go into the city and can explore the local culture, sightseeing, food and shopping.
Also known as the harbour capital of Taiwan, Kaohsiung is Taiwan’s second largest city and biggest commercial port. Travellers can enjoy the city aboard the Love River Cruise. Kaohsiung has plenty of open-air cafes along the river. Taichung, on the other hand is a city of culture and relaxation. Taichung is the birthplace of many of Taiwan’s specialty foods and beverages and has popularised teahouses in Taiwan. Pearl milk tea, for instance, traces back to the city’s tea houses. The traditionally decorated tea house’s serve an array of tea beverages.
