According to the latest Taiwan Tourism Bureau statistics, Taiwan has 2,600 regular hotels, 100 tourist hotels, and 3,000 registered guest homes. 

The Tourism Bureau under the Ministry of Transportation and Communications has begun a new promotion campaign to find Taiwan's top 10 hotels and guesthouses.

Janice Seh-jen Lai, Director General of the Bureau says, "Great hotel services can touch one's heart much in the same way as beautiful scenery."

Local hotels and guesthouses introduce their facilities through videos, photographs and short messages uploaded to a bureau website. A formula of public voting, click rates and frequency of content linked to other pages will be used to choose the best 100 facilities.

The top 10 will be chosen for creativity, friendliness, meals and tourism activities. Each will receive 50,000 NT (approximately 1,600 USD).
