A group of 12 Filipino cycle tourers have expressed gratitude for the generosity of Taiwanese police who helped them when they had difficulty finding food and shelter while touring the island over Chinese New Year.

Hualien Police Precinct of the Hualien County Police Department commented on February 14 that 12 round-Taiwan cyclists from the Philippines sought help from officers last Wednesday when they were unable to secure accommodation or food, the CNA news reported.

As it was the second day of the Lunar New Year, most hostels and hotels were full. Knowing that the cycle tourers were tired and hungry, three officers set off to look for places for them to stay.

While they awaited news at the Hualien Police Precinct, the tourists were given takeaway meals, which they only later found out were the dinners of the law enforcement officers.

Thanks to the work of the three officers, places were found for the overseas visitors, meaning they were able to get the rest and food they needed before continuing their journey the next day.

In order to express their gratitude, the visitors asked a Taiwanese friend to tell their story on Facebook. In it they praised the generosity and hospitality of the Hualien officers, who made their 1,000-kilometer tour around Taiwan trip all the more memorable.
