Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s Rubber Duck made its Taiwan debut at Greater Kaohsiung’s Glory Pier on Sept. 19. Local tourism industry operators have created three fine gold ornaments in the shape of a rubber duck, one of which is a “gold and diamond duck” with two diamonds inset as the duck’s eyes. The three valuable ducks are worth more than NT$600,000 and they are being offered as prizes in a sweepstake that 100,000 visitors to Greater Kaohsiung are invited to take part in for a chance to win.

Greater Kaohsiung-based tourist operators have joined hands with 427 local restaurants, hotels and travel agencies to issue 100,000 sweepstake tickets that visitors can get by shopping at the participating stores. One can enter the raffle just by filling out personal information. A public raffle will be held at the end of October and the winners will be announced at the official Web sites of the Kaohsiung Tourism Association and the Kaohsiung Association of Travel Agents.
