The best trip in the world, Taiwan Explorers Wanted

 

Visit Taiwan to win N.T.1,000,000  (approx. GBP20,000 / US30,000)

 

 

 

     

TAIPEI – Taiwan is about to launch the search for a team of explorers to win NT$1 million (US$30,000) to travel around the country, following the example of Queensland’s Best Job in the World, the Ministry of Transportation Tourism Bureau said Monday.

From June 1 to 30, the bureau wants to find 50 teams of at least two blog-writing explorers each, including one foreign citizen, to design an original four-day tourist itinerary. Each team will have the opportunity to receive NT$7,000 a day, with a chance to win a NT$1 million prize.

Each team can register in Chinese, English or Japanese at the website www.TaiwanBestTrip.net and post a short film presenting the team as well as explain a theme for its designed trip.

The Tourism Bureau will announce its choice of 50 teams on July 10. The popularity of the introductory video will account for 10 percent of the result, the feasibility of the itinerary for 35 percent, and the creativity and inexpensiveness for the remaining 55 percent, according to the web site.

The teams have to arrive in Taiwan and complete their itinerary between July 11 and August 31. Each day they should also post a video of up to 10 minutes online, including 200 words of commentary, about the progress of their trip. The best team will receive a four-day, three-night trip including airline tickets and hotel accommodation, the bureau said.

Before September 30, the teams must post an 800-word travelogue and a three- to five-minute film on the web site. From October 1 to 30, voters can contribute to the final result by selecting the best team.

On November 15, the Tourism Bureau will announce the winning team for the NT$1 million travel award, which must then spend a month touring Taiwan in February or March 2010.

The Tourism Bureau launched its Best Trip competition after the resounding worldwide success for Queensland’s Best Job in the World promotion to spend six months on an island exploring nature and posting experiences on a blog. Taiwan’s Clare Wang won the “wild card” online popularity vote but in the end the organizers picked a British charity worker for the NT$3.5 million job.

Hello,

My name is Carolina. I am a student on the MA Creative Practice for Narrative Environments course at Southampton Row. We are currently working on a project at the site for the new Central St. Martins school in King’s Cross. We have access to a beautiful and huge grade II listed goods shed on site for three days in June. We want to use the space as a future archeological site of the school. We hope not to only speculate about the future of CSM at the new site but to set precedents and legacies which can carried on to form foundations for the new school.

One of the things we would like to do in the vast space is to start off the day with a communal tai-chi session. I am therefore writing to you in the hope that you may be able to put in contact with an instructor that would be happy to down to the space and lead the session. It would be ideal if the person had a link to the University or specifically Central St. Martin’s.

I would appreciate any advice from you guys.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Carolina Caicedo
