Taipei-Kinmen's newly revamped travel and tourism website was officially relaunched on Thursday and will be linked with social media and renown travel review website TripAdvisor to offer more international visibility for the local hospitality industry, according to the offshore county's tourism department.
Director-general of Kinmen's Transportation and Tourism Bureau Chen Mei-ling (???) said she believes people will find it easy to search the county's travel information from the new website, "Classic Kinmen Travel."
The new version repackaged the island's attractions, media files, and integrated voice guided tours in Chinese. It also allows users to select itineraries to provide ease of travel in the county, Chen said.
The new website is linked with social media such as Facebook and Line which allows news and attraction sharing, according to the tourism department.
In order to provide hotel and hospitality businesses a more diversified marketing platform, the new website offers the businesses a "manage" function to allow legal operators a better chance of exposure.
The tourism department will host a seminar on operating instructions for the businesses on how to operate the manage function at 3:30 p.m. on Dec. 12 in the county government building's Multimedia room.
The new website, http://kinmen.travel, also features different languages including English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
