Magistrate Yao stated that the COVID situation has been relatively under control in Taiwan. The CECC announced that COVID restrictions would be relaxed beginning March 1st. Since then, calls inquiring when the 2022 Balloon Festival would take place have been pouring in. Vendors and festival-goers look forward to the Balloon Festival which would be the first post-COVID large-scale summer spectacle. We welcome friends from all around to come to visit Taitung this summer and partake in this event.

The Transportation and Tourism Development Department noted that Taitung is perfect for traveling in a post-COVID state due to its lower population density, slower pace of living, and exquisite natural scenery. Under Magistrate Yao’s slow economic policies, Taitung has made Booking.com’s list of the world’s friendliest cities twice in a row. Last year, the International Balloon Festival was opened to Taitung residents exclusively due to the pandemic. Tourists from around Taiwan were all disappointed to have missed the festival.
