IN RECENT years, Taiwan’s Muslim-friendly environment has been highly recognized internationally. Pingtung, with its higher temperature and even more friendly people, also looks forward to becoming the top travel destination for the 1.8 billion Muslims around the world.
The Pingtung County Government actively assists in the certification of the Muslim Friendly Environment (MFE). Up until this Nov 7, 2020, businesses including bed-and-breakfasts and souvenir shops have received the MFE certificate.
With approximately 1.8 billion Muslims around the world, there are certainly great business opportunities in the tourism market.
Recently, Kenting Amanda Hotel—Essaouira Restaurant, Kenting Holiday Resort Hotel, Kenting Maldives Hot Spring Hotel and Fuwan Chocolate have obtained the certificate.
The 7 new businesses in Pingtung with the MFE certificate are as follows: Summerland Garden Resort, Top Tai Kenting, Kenting Comic B&B, The Light Hostel, Love Ocean B&B, Fu Baoz handmade buns and baos, and Hwajen Traditional Confectionary. And a total of 5 souvenirs from two stores have passed the halal certification: Hwajen handmade cookies (peanut, pumpkin seed, black bean and sesame flavors) and Mango-Lu (dried mango).
