The Taiwanese Government made waves in 2011 as one of the first countries to offer mass Wi-Fi to its citizens. Now, the nation has extended the courtesy to its tourists.

To access the network, citizens use their local phone number to register. However, to save the hassle for foreign tourists, visitors need simply to visit a Taiwan visitors bureau and show their passport.

Visitors can create a login for the iTaiwan account and access it by logging onto their personal devices. With now about 4,400 hotspots nationwide, citizens and visitors should never be without a signal nearby.

Taiwan has shown itself to be a leader with wireless innovations, and their latest move can only help their burgeoning tourist figures.
