Taiwan and Southeast Asia are quickly moving closer together. From trade and cultural exchanges to academia, migration, and intermarriage, connections between Taiwan and the countries of Southeast Asia are growing. One place where these closer ties are being felt is in the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the island of Borneo. In this corner of Southeast Asia, it is tourism that forms the growing bond with Taiwan. As Taiwan works to attract Malaysian tourists, officials in Sarawak hope their rainforests, their beaches, their ethnic kaleidoscope, and their laid-back island living with be a hit with people from Taiwan. This week, a delegation of local notables from Sarawak paid a visit to RTI’s studios. I sat down with three of the group’s members to discuss Sarawak, local people's impressions of Taiwan, how Taiwan can make itself a more attractive destination, and of course, why people from Taiwan should pay Sarawak a visit.
