"Taiwan is not a huge area, but its variety is huge," mentioned Chao Kwang-shoung, global affairs deputy director with the Taiwan Tourism Bureau. "We have acquired normal landscapes."

But studio operators say Hong Kong couples are finding comparable scenery across their border on the south coast of mainland China, even though Chinese can get less expensive photos at property.
