The Honourable Ng Suee Lim, the EXCO of Local Government and Tourism in a statement said, that Selangor has received 75,783 tourists from Taiwan pre-pandemic. Unfortunately, the number has decreased to 68% due to travel restrictions throughout the pandemic.

The trip showcased diverse gastronomic delights of Selangor including the flavourful Bak Kut Teh and immersed Taiwanese visitors in the cultural richness of Chinese Community Villages in Kuala Langat, Hulu Selangor and Sabak Bernam.
