(Minghui.org) Ever since Taiwan opened its doors to visitors from Mainland China, tour buses have never stopped bringing people to tourist spots in Taiwan. In order to reach people from the Mainland and dispel the lies instilled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), for years, Falun Gong practitioners in Taiwan have actively clarified the truth at these tourist sites. The attention of Chinese tourists is drawn to Falun Gong information as soon as they get off the buses. Some of them have said, “When you see Falun Gong displays, you know you that are in the land of freedom.” Some of the visitors read the practitioners' banners out aloud: “Falun Dafa is great!”

Falun Gong practitioners clarify the truth about Falun Gong in front of Taipei 101. Tourists from Mainland China told them, “You said it so well!”

In recent years, Falun Gong information can be found at every tourist spot in Taiwan, rain or shine. Practitioners greet tourists from Mainland China with a smile and truth-clarification materials in hand, “Welcome to Taiwan! We wish you a safe trip!” They help tourists see the true story of Falun Gong and choose a bright future for themselves. The CCP not only deceives people by slandering Falun Gong, but even threatens tourists. Tourists are often warned by the CCP not to get close to Falun Gong practitioners, not to accept flyers, and not to agree to quit the CCP – otherwise no one on the bus will be allowed to go back home. Many tourists who come overseas for the first time are on guard. But as Falun Gong practitioners continued to clarify the truth, tourists have changed their attitude. Many of them wanted to get copies of Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Those who had already learned the facts about Falun Gong quit the CCP quickly. Many tourists give Falun Gong practitioners a thumbs-up, and some take pictures of the practitioners' exercise demonstrations.

“As distance tests a horse's strength, so time reveals a person's heart.” This Chinese saying accurately describes how Falun Gong practitioners' sincerity and compassion have touched people's hearts and broken down their prejudice in the past years.

Falun Gong practitioners in Taiwan sacrifice their holidays and family time to clarify the facts about Falun Gong to Chinese tourists. Their wish is to testify to the benefits of Falun Gong and to tell their fellow Chinese from Mainland China the true story. Mr. You Benyu made a commitment to spend as much time as possible at a Falun Gong information booth, as long as he could make ends meet. He found a job working night shifts, so that he could be at the Falun Gong information booth during the day. Years of truth-clarification experience have shown him that many tourists behave differently on the buses and off the buses. They are actually very curious about Falun Gong. Some tourists carefully read the display boards which tell about Dafa and the ongoing persecution in China. Some were moved to tears. Some bowed deeply to Falun Gong practitioners. Some gave practitioners a thumbs-up. Some secretly looked out from behind the curtains on the bus. One tourist wanted to take pictures with the practitioners. He also took pictures of the display so that he could show them to his mother, who also practiced Falun Gong.


Displays at Alishan Museum expose the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party

There is an elderly Falun Gong practitioner who lives on Alishan Mountain. For the past year, she has been standing at the bridge of Mulan Garden with a board on her back stating “Falun Dafa is great!” She greets tourists with her Taiwanese accent, “Falun Dafa is great!” “Welcome to Alishan!” “Quit the CCP to be safe!” Every word of hers has become more and more powerful. Many tourists have quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations through her.

Falun Gong practitioners help tourists with directions and share umbrellas with them on rainy days. Many tourists completely change their view of Falun Gong after their encounter with these kind practitioners.

Once, a tour guide stopped at the Falun Gong display and said aloud to his group, “Please take a look. This is Falun Gong. Falun Dafa is great!” The group of tourists were greatly moved. A Taiwanese tour guide told Falun Gong practitioners, “I admire you for your dignity and broadmindedness. You make people feel close to you. We tour guides understand clearly what you are doing. You have done so well! So admirable!”
