A look at Taiwan's Presidential Office

President Tsai Ing-wen is inviting foreign tourists to stay for a night at the Presidential Office. This a part of Taiwan’s tourism promotion and the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the Presidential Office.

 On the 100th anniversary of the Presidential Office Building, Taiwan is inviting foreign guests to stay a night.  You can witness the changing of the guard and the raising of the flag and enjoy  a complimentary breakfast. You can also tour the Presidential Office Building. That means opportunities for some pretty cool pictures. This is world’s first Presidential Office to offer such an invitation and it’s the first time Taiwan’s Presidential Office has offered visitors a free night’s stay.

Guests will stay at the Lixing Building right next to the Presidential Office in a 46 square meter (14 ping ) room. To apply you need to be at least 20 years old, submit a short video explaining why you want to visit Taiwan and give your social media links. Ten groups of up to 2 persons will be selected for the first phase.

A panel will select the lucky winners. Anyone without a Republic of China passport is eligible, including Chinese tourists. The deadline is August 31 and the winners will be announced on September 20. Presidential Office Spokesman Chang Chun-han says, "Anyone without a Republic of China passport is welcome. He says they welcome you to Taiwan and hope you get to experience Taiwan’s beauty and charm."
