Taipei-Visitors to Taiwan's offshore Kinmen County will have a chance to win plane tickets, hotel stays and iPhone 11s if they make purchases of certain amounts until Nov. 11, the Kinmen Tourism Department has announced.
Part of Kinmen's Gold Exploration October Shopping activity, the lucky draw will feature Golden Lion Cinemax movie tickets, Golden Lake Hotel vouchers, return flights to Kinmen and iPhone 11s as its main prizes.
To enter, visitors must first pick up lottery tickets handed out by the Tourism Department and have them stamped after they make a purchase above spending thresholds at a participating shop.
Visitors will need stamps from three shops for their ticket to be eligible to enter the draw.
The lottery tickets are being handed out at Kinmen Shangyi Airport, Shuitou Wharf, and visitor information centers at bus stations and township and village offices in Kinmen.
The result of the contest will be announced on a live stream on the Tourism Department's Facebook page on Nov. 16.

The October shopping promotion is just one of many campaigns run by Kinmen to energize its tourism sector, a key source of income for the county, which is located just a few kilometers off the Chinese coast.
The sector's fortunes have also been boosted in October by China's decision to exempt Kinmen from a ban on independent travel by its citizens to Taiwan and allow travelers from 20 cities in southeastern China to visit Kinmen combined with its National Day holiday.
