    Im pretty sure the entire tourist count per month for taiwan was more than the whole population of palau.

    Dont think the entire population is coming to visit 🤣

    I suspect Palau is under huge US diplomatic pressure to open up to Taiwan.
    The island-state ll be wiped off from the map if 1 Covid19 virus sneaks in.

    Travel bubble taiwan-palau?
    As usual ST propaganda presented as news, slanted. Palau on the stealth, orchestrated by the US just recognised the Taiwan diplomatically. This likely one off gvt sponsored trip is a reward for Palau Island whc has less than 20k people.
    The point is keep hyping on Spore-Hk bubble as if there ain't no nothing better to leeport.

    Taiwan only has the AZ vaccine which is proven to cause blood blot. Many European countries stopped AZ vaccine but Taiwanese government continue to inject. Poor taiwanese people.

    as Taiwan DPP veteran politician say "Palau is an island with few traveller, they can just do testing at the airport, air bubble is rather pointless for such a small and isolated community".

    what we need are meaningful bubble between established economies.

    According to Taiwan report the first Palua tour group, only 20% are paying travelers. The rest are sponsored by travel and govt offices. And there is not likely to be another tour group any sooner, the tour companies could only garnered 10 potential reservations.

    Why is Singapore not concerned about China's human rights violation of the Uyghurs? It seems Singapore cannot wait to get on with business as usual with a country with an atrocious behavior. Not only of human rights violation but also its occupation of others' spaces.
