The Tamsui-Kavalan Trail wins unanimous praise! Compliments from thousands of miles away.
The "Tamsui-Kavalan Trail is strongly recommended to be a model of international ecotourism.

Invited by the International Cooperation and Development Fund (hereafter called ICDF) to the "Ecotourism Promotion Seminar", the Tourism and Travel Department of New Taipei City Government shared examples of ecotourism with the supervisors of tourism units from 11 countries, including Palau, the Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Eswatini, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Haiti, and Saint Kitts and Nevis. The Director of the Tourism and Travel Department Zhang Qi-qiang indicated that it's hoped to introduce the world to the treasure secret of the Western Pacific – the Tamsui-Kavalan Trail through the international communication and exchange activities; and, by sharing and field visits, we expect to enhance the international visibility of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trail

In the seminar, Section Chief of the Planning Section, Tourism and Travel Department Zhang Shi-zheng took "HEAL" (History Ecology Adventure Leisure) as the topic to explain that the Tamsui-Kavalan Trail has become a type of healing tourism, and participating supervisor officials were made to know the reappearing scenes of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trail in addition, all participants of the seminar were led on a field visit to the Tamsui-Kavalan North Road and Jinzibei Trail, as well as the presently most popular ShenAo Rail Bike. Everyone bathed in the mountains and forests, which are rich in healing energy, to absorb the phytoncides of history.

Along the way, people enthusiastically took photos with the Jinzibei, a municipal heritage site, and Tamsui-Kavalan stone pillar. Laura Margarita Zepeda, who is from Nicaragua, indicated that it takes an actual field visit to be really impressed by the beauty of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trail, which is a journey full of amazing scenery that leads us to be closer to nature as well as to enjoy birds singing and the fragrance of flowers; Mario Alejandro Rosa Guevara, who is from Honduras indicated and said, "I'm really grateful that the Tourism and Travel Department built such a wonderful trail to set a model of international ecotourism"; Jorge Aldana, who is from Belize indicated and said, "The trail has such breathtaking beauty, and I enjoy the natural atmosphere in the site. Admiring the beauty along the way makes me feel very rewarded.”

The travel experience that combines mountains and the sea embodies the greatest feature of New Taipei Tours and has allowed supervisors of tourism units from different countries to witness the efforts by the New Taipei City Government in the promotion of ecotourism, such as building the ShenAo Rail Bike that connects the TRA Railway Stations, Badouzi, and ShenAo so as to give new life to the abandoned railway in ShenAo; also, it integrates the features of coastlines, ecology, mines, and railways to promote local tours.

Additionally, the marketing of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trail has been actively promoted at present to make the Tamsui-Kavalan Trail become a trending trail tour in Taiwan; also, working with travel agencies managing the New Taipei City Mountain Climbing Festival has allowed the Tamsui-Kavalan Trail to be seen by more people who love traveling as well as allowing them to see New Taipei. In the future, we look forward to allowing all the historic scenes along the Tamsui-Kavalan Trail to reappear, which will be internationally famous and a must-visit trail in life!
