Taiwan ad slogans

Postby cranky laowai » Thu Jan 01, 2015 00:47

This year on Taipei 101 they unveiled the slogan "iSee Taiwan," which is a play on "àixī Táiwān" (愛惜臺灣), Mandarin for "cherish Taiwan."

Apparently this isn't a "touch your heart" kind of thing, as there's already an "iSee Taiwan Foundation." At first glance their website looks normal; but upon closer examination it's really a bunch of really big jpgs -- no real text, just jpgs of text. :crazy

Perhaps "iSee" is the name of some new computer/video technology?

A bit of advanced publicity promo in effect?

It does have the de rigueur " i " prefix and all.... :idunno: ...just a guess.

A British site has listed all the national tourism slogans it could find.

Some interesting ones:
  • Visit Armenia, it is beautiful.
  • Belize: A curious place.
  • Syria: Always beautiful.
  • Think Hungary more than expected.

So, really, Taiwan could be doing worse than it has to date.

Oddly, the map on the site gives Taiwan and its "Heart of Asia" slogan. But Taiwan is not listed in the text on the Web page or on the associated Google doc. Ahem.

Gotta love Taiwan vs Malaysia, though. The Heart of Asia vs Truly Asia. :lol:
