Since it went into service in January this year, Taipei''s fleet of double-decker tour buses has topped out at an average of only 10 passengers for every departure. To bring more tourists onboard, the operators of the service are pushing out combo deals on tickets, and are even holding photography shows to raise the buses'' profile. Double-decker tour buses like this one are giving visitors a fresh perspective on over 20 major sights in Taipei. But operatorsare currently having trouble selling tickets for the service.Foreign TouristThey pointed to the good attraction area, so that I can maybe stop by and then visit it and take a look at it. It was I think a half day, NT$500. That’s reasonable.Japanese TouristThe single-day price is actually pretty cheap. I trust Taiwan’s tour buses will do well.Foreign tourists have lent praise to the double-decker tour buses. Butaccording to Taipei''s Department of Information and Tourism, only 18,000 passes have been sold since the buses hit the roads of Taipei more than two months ago, putting the program a long way from breaking even.Chuang Chi-yingTaipei Double Decker Bus VPThere’s 5 to 10 percent growth per month. Though average passenger load is only about 40 percent, we’re hoping to get to 80 percent passenger load. That way, we can balance our books.To drive up sales, the operators of the bus service have been offering discount packages at local travel fairs, and have also put on local photography competitions to increase public recognition of the service. Taipei''s Department of Information and Tourism is confident that the buses’ amenities are up to snuff, and is set to continue to push the double-decker service until those buses are filled.

Local businesses are already taking aim at the upcoming holiday shopping season, with one mall in Taipei setting up a group of wooden buildings in what it’s calling an authentic French Christmas market. Another five-star hotel in the area is offering guests the chance to rent and wear special ball gowns to parties it’s throwing in-house. Some locals are already digging in to special surf-and-turf Christmas dinner specials, complete with seasonal Christmas-themed desserts.Restaurant PatronThe dessert is really cute, and it really matches the whole Christmas atmosphere. There’s going to be a lot of people here on Christmas itself, so we decided to come in advance.Meanwhile, local hotels are rolling out their own holiday specials, with one offering guests who stay for a night the chance to rent and wear evening dresses to in-house parties.The hotel is even providing a range of name-brand cosmetic products, including eye shadow, rouge, and lipstick, to let its guests look their best at the party.Hotel GuestYou don’t get to wear this type of clothing too often, maybe only when you’re a bridesmaid at a wedding, so I think it’s great to have a chance to wear it here. Liu Yi-hsiuHotel SpokespersonWe’re hoping to break a total of 1,000 groups at these events.Not content to let hotels steal all the glamour, one mall has set up what it’s dubbed a French-themed Christmas market, replete with a snow machine to help locals experience something like an actual white Christmas.
