Filipino tourist arrivals in Taiwan
The Philippines has become a key source market for Taiwan’s new southbound tourists in recent years. In 2019 alone, the number of tourists coming from the Philippines to Taiwan increased by 20% and has exceeded 450,000 visitors.
According to the Tourism Bureau’s visitor trends survey, a significant percentage of those arrival figures are 20-39 years old. The short travel, as well as visa-free access to Taiwan, has helped the rise of the young ethnic market, driving more Filipinos to Taiwan.
