Taipei, May 10 (CNA) The Indonesian island of Bali is the most popular tourist destination among single men and women in Taiwan, according to a list of the most-searched travel spots compiled by Yahoo! Taiwan and released Friday. Bali was followed by Kyodo in central Japan, Paris, the city of Gold Coast in Australia and Bangkok, in descending order of popularity gauged by the number of views of webpages or searches about certain scenic spots on the portal site. Rounding out the top 10 were Prague, Rome, New York, Barcelona and Rio de Janeiro, according to Yahoo! Taiwan. The Internet company said clicks on articles about romantic encounters during foreign travel were 25 percent more than other travel articles. According to Yahoo! Taiwan, travel articles draw an estimated 250,000 visits daily. The company said this points to possible business opportunities in the tourism, leisure and social networking sectors offered by catering to singles. The number of single women aged 30 to 39 in Taiwan topped 610,000 in 2012, the company added, citing statistics from the Ministry of the Interior. (By Stacey Wu and Scully Hsiao)
