In 2023, as pandemic restrictions were gradually lifted, the domestic and international travel markets showed signs of recovery. However, the overall tourism product market still faces challenges due to increased diversification of travel options. As an outlying island, Penghu faced even more formidable challenges. Despite these obstacles, in its concerted efforts to stimulate tourism opportunities in Penghu, the Penghu NSA Headquarters continues to integrate Penghu's tourism resources and plan initiatives to increase the overall appeal of Penghu as a travel destination. Thanks to the diligent work of various departments, the year 2023 has proven to be a year of remarkable achievements, with the Yueli Bay Recreation Area in Qimei and the Suogang Bicycle Rest Area each receiving prestigious awards, including Gold Award in the "2023 FIABCI Taiwan Real Estate Excellence Awards" and Honorable Mention in the "23rd Public Construction Golden Quality Award.

Continuing our commitment to enhancing overall administrative service performance, we have garnered consistent accolades for outstanding achievements.

The Penghu Marine Ecotourism Demonstration and Promotion Program clinched the first position in the Tourism Bureau's Innovative Ideas King for 2023. Additionally, the Penghu NSA Headquarters earned the top spot in the annual administrative performance evaluation by the Tourism Bureau for 2023.

In the current year's tourism marketing endeavors, apart from organizing regular major classic festivals, the Penghu NSA Headquarters is determined to transform the perception of Penghu's tourism during the off-season and balance the flow of visitors between peak and off-peak periods. The goal is to enhance the overall quality of tourism experiences. In this regard, the Penghu NSA Headquarters actively promotes tourism during the off-peak season. The 2024 Gaillardia Islands Penghu Cross-Sea Marathon – 2024 Spring Wangan Half Marathon will debut on March 31, introducing a distinctive offshore island marathon that explores and captures the beauty and allure of Penghu's Wangan during the spring season.

These Penghu-themed activities are expected to create unique local immersive tourism experiences with Penghu-themed specialty tours and the Penghu Seaweed Cultural Experience to promote a new form of off-peak tourism. In continuing the brand of the 9th Penghu Autumn Festival, the Penghu NSA Headquarters plans to organize a series of distinct events during the off-peak seasons (spring, autumn, winter). These may include the Penghu Good Food Festival, Old Fort Concert, Landscape Art Performances, Art Dance Troupe Shows, and more, aiming to maximize the marketing benefits during the off-peak tourism periods.
