With lengthier stays allowed for visitors from Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Taiwan, the Guam Visitor's Bureau spent the weekend in Taipei showcasing the island as the perfect tourist destination.

GVB Deputy General Manager Ernie Galito told KUAM News, "People coming in from the visa waiver countries of Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Hong Kong are now able to extend their trip from 15 to 45 days."  He added, "Other good news we were able to bring back is three airline companies will be hosting charter flights during the Chinese New Year, this will be starting February 13 though the 17th, so we are looking to see a lot of bookings coming from Taiwan."

Continental, China Air and EVA will be the providers.
