July 18th marks the second anniversary since Taiwan opened its tourism market to Chinese mainland residents. To mark the occasion, residents from the last 6 provinces and regions including Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, Tibet and Qinghai will now be able to travel to Taiwan.

In June 2008, officials from both sides met in Beijing and signed historic agreements on flights and tourism across the Strait. One month later, residents from 12 mainland provinces and municipalities including Beijing, Tianjin, and Shanghai were the first to be allowed to travel on tours to Taiwan. On February 2009, other 13 provinces and municipalities were added to the list. So far, a total of 1.3 million mainland residents have travelled to Taiwan.
