Taiwan and Palau set to open quarantine-free 'travel bubble'

One of Taipei's few diplomatic allies looks to boost COVID-ravaged tourism

TAIPEI -- Taiwan will open its first quarantine-free "travel bubble" next week, allowing tour groups to travel to and from the tiny Pacific nation of Palau, one of Taipei's 15 remaining diplomatic allies.

After a four-day visit to Taiwan starting Sunday, Palau's President Surangel Whipps Jr. will return home with a group of Taiwanese tourists on the first bubble flight. Tour groups will be able to visit both locations for up to eight days.
