  • Hello everyone, I am Ben Hedges

  • I'm British, but I spent my youth in Hong Kong

  • I later also came to university in Taiwan

  • and now I host a television show speaking in Chinese

  • The show broadcasts in Taiwan and North America

  • I have traveled to many countries in Asia and today I want to share with you my five reasons why Taiwan is the best Asian destination that you could visit

  • One, small but big

  • First, this island that was once called Ilha Formosa, the beautiful isle

  • seems to have everything

  • and be able to accommodate any kind of travel plan you could think of

  • You can ascend above a sea of clouds, climbing one of Taiwan's over two hundred three thousand meter peaks

  • yet also take the opportunity to relax in the blue ocean, on Taiwan's endless stretches of coastline

  • You can experience superior service in Taiwan's vibrant cities

  • or sample the slower rhythms of life in Taiwan's rustic villages.

  • But what most important is

  • all these places may not be as far away as you think

  • and that is where the true magic of Taiwan lies

  • just a short trip on Taiwan's high speed rail or other transportation

  • can lead you to vastly different experiences

  • Two, never lost in translation

  • Breaking through the language barrier is also something to consider when traveling

  • If you speak English

  • you will have no problem communicating in Taiwan

  • Most young people speak English to a good level

  • but what about those who are a little older?

  • Excuse me, ma'am

  • Can you help me with the cellphone?

  • It's out of battery and I need to call my friend

  • Apple?

  • Yes

  • Three, incredible warm-hearted people

  • When you travel in Taiwan

  • it is the people who make the experience what it is

  • Taiwanese people's hospitality and passion in welcoming foreigners is famous across the globe

  • Where are you going? Where are you going? Where are you going? Where are you going? ......

  • It really is like this

  • so in Taiwan you never have to worry about getting lost

  • and don't worry about your safety

  • all you need to worry about is

  • picking the most intelligent-looking person to guide you on your way

  • Four, Awesome Customizable service

  • Taiwanese people are friendly and passionate

  • This characteristic is also expressed in their awesome customized service

  • I would like to try something new, but I don't want it too sweet

  • Do you have any recommendations?

  • You can try our bubble tea

  • If you don't like it too sweet

  • you can decide sweetness yourself

  • One to ten

  • You can also decide the amount of ice

  • Okay, then I'll have bubble tea, less ice and half sugar

  • You know, in the West when you buy a soft drink

  • it's not really the same thing

  • Hey man! Can I get one of these with just a little bit of ice and no sugar?

  • It only comes in two types, buddy

  • Like this straight up

  • or like this

  • That would be one dollar, buddy

  • Five, only in Taiwan. Unexpected surprises.

  • Getting to this point

  • you probably all really want to come to Taiwan by now

  • Lastly, one important point

  • when you come to Taiwan

  • you need to remember to use your mobile phone or other video recording devices

  • and shoot what you feel are the most beautiful or the most interesting things you see while you are here

  • upload them to YouTube

  • and you can take part in the Taiwan Tourism Bureau's Anytime for Taiwan. Film Taiwan Action! event

  • The ten entries which receive the highest number of votes

  • will be selected to win a round the world ticket

  • wherever you want to go, that's your ticket to get there

  • Even if you aren't in the top ten as long as you receive over 1000 votes

  • you will be able to exchange every vote for NT$1 worth of prize money

  • that's US$1 for every 30 votes

  • So traveling can earn you money after all

  • is everybody ready?
