NAGBABALIK si Mikey Bustos para i-promote ang ‘Undiscovered Taipei’ ng Taipei’s Information and Tourism Department para imbitahang ang turistang Pinoy na pumunta at bumalik sa Taipei.
Last year, nilikha ng popular Filipino YouTube star ang lyrics ng song ng “My New Crushie” at ang music video featuring Taipei Tourism ay nagkaroon ng higit 1 million views.
Noong June 14, naging matagumpay ang launch na ginanap sa Makati Diamond Residences last June 14 na kung saan muling ipinamalas ni Mikey ang kanyang talento sa musika, nagsulat siya ng rap sa ancient number of Taiwanese opera at tinawag niya itong “I Showed My Parents Taipei.”
Sa music video, ginampanan ni Mikey ang three characters all by himself na nagpapakita ng major locations sa Taipei. It’s a parody that will definitely catch people’s attention.
Nagkaroon din consumer event noong June 15 sa Glorietta 2 Activity Center na kung saan nag-perform uli si Mikey ng kanyang new song, may Meet and Greet, food samplings at fun games.
Sa naturang launch, the Department of Information and Tourism of Taipei City has gathered an army of Taipei’s popular businesses, showcasing Taipei’s authentic and classic dishes.
Kasama dito ang Taipei’s bestselling breakfast shop Zhenfang’s Taiwanese-styled omelette and fresh milk tea combo, Taipei’s spicy hotpot chain Mantanghung’s Sichuan-styled beef dried noodle, Taipei’s must-buy souvenir BRAVO!BEAR mango Shortcake by Taiwan’s leading pastry maker Kuo Yuan Ye, popular Jin Jin Dessert’s honey citron aiyu jelly and unique sugar and grass jelly and milk, one of Filipinos’ favorite tea shops, Cha FOR TEA to go’s signature 913 pearl milk tea and honey green tea, online travel experience provider Klook’s exclusive Taipei experience set, highly inquired by Filipino visitor’s Taipei double-decker sightseeing bus and trendy hotels.
In-announce din ang new Taipei travel product promotion for FIT travelers sa Manila-based media. Ang promotion ay joint initiative sa pagitan ng Taiwan’s top airliner Eva Air at online travel experience agency na Klook.
May deal naman ang si Commissioner Yi-ting Liu sa bagong music video ni Mikey, “feel free to share and forward the video as we’ll offer a free air ticket from the Philippines to Taiwan when the music video collects over 300,000 views.”
Tumaas nga ang number of visitors ng 44% last year at gusto nilang i-promote pa ng husto ang Taipei at mas tumaas pa this year, at ngayong extended hanggang July 31, 2020 ang free visa, mas marami pang mga Pinoy ang makaka-discover ng isa sa best destination sa Asya at pauli-ulit na dayuhin.
