Taipei, Dec. 1 (CNA) Taiwan launched a six-month campaign Friday that will allow overseas nationals making short visits to Taiwan to buy two high-speed rail (HSR) tickets to central and southern Taiwan for the price of one.

From noon Friday to May 31, 2024, travelers with visa-exempt entry or tourist visas allowing maximum stays for 180 days are eligible for the promotion, which is available at online travel platforms KKday and klook, the Tourism Administration said in a press release.

Holders of Taiwan resident certificates or a Republic of China (Taiwan) passport are not eligible to purchase tickets using the promotion, which is aimed at encouraging foreign tourists to visit less-traveled central and southern Taiwan, the administration said.

The limited offer, based on a first-come, first-serve basis, will apply to one-way HSR journeys ending at Taichung, Changhua, Yunlin, Chiayi, Tainan or Zuoying station, the administration said.

Overseas visitors who take advantage of the promotional campaign in December will be given a bonus package, containing free tickets for a round-trip on the MRT Taoyuan Airport Line and a 72-hour free pass on the Taipei Metro system.

Visitors can redeem that special offer at service counters at the airport line's A12 and A13 stations between 6 a.m. and midnight, it said.
