The Israeli Ministry of Tourism is working to promote tourism from Taiwan to Israel after both sides have signed Visa Waiver agreement last May (affective since Aug. 2011). As part of their efforts, the Ministry has invited one of Taiwan’s most viewed Traveling Show – King of Adventure (冒險王) for a 16 day journey in Israel. “King of Adventure” leads the audience to different countries to experiences various local cultures. The show traveled to more than 60 countries around the world and was awarded with most prestigious prize of Broadcast television in Taiwan- The Golden Bell Prize in 2004, 2007 and 2009.
MultiReach had the pleasure to work with “King of Adventure” 5 people team led by the charming host Wayne (惟毅) during their* 16 days journey. Fascinated by the beauty of Israel and captured by the warmth of the Israeli people, we heard Wayne saying more than once that Israel is definitely a place he would like to visit again. From Golan Heights & Haifa to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv & Eilat, Wayne’s adventures in Israel will be all squeezed into 4 episodes broadcast in Taiwan’s SET TV (ch. 30) during coming December & January.

In our previous post here, we’ve shared the news on Taiwanese delegation visiting Israel led by ITRI’s (Taiwan’s largest and most important Industrial Research Institute) President Shyu Jyuo-min. We’ve attached a full interview with Mr. Shyu in which he was quoted saying “ITRI will focus its research and development on green energy and biotechnology”.
This blog keeps stressing these two mentioned above industries have the greatest potential for Israeli-Taiwanese cooperation. Hence, in his last visit to Taiwan (May 2011), Prof. Daniel Weihs, chief scientist of the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology, said Taiwan was the best among the 15 countries that had signed a Scientific and Technological Cooperation Agreement with Israel in terms of the success of relationships built and papers published in several areas.
In the past few years, Scientists and academics from Taiwan and Israel have jointly worked in the areas of neuroscience, medical engineering, nanotechnology and medical devices. Future cooperation shall vary from marine sciences to algorithms for application in robotics.
Israel and Taiwan have recently granted mutual visa-waiver privilege to Taiwanese and Israeli passport holders.
