Taiwan: A New Attraction for Tourists

The Minister of Justice visited yesterday the Penghu Prison on the Penghu archipelago in the Taiwan Strait (HERE):

I needed to read twice the CNA article to be sure I well understood:


The normally heavily guarded prison was opened to local officials, the media and the public Wednesday in support of the MOJ’s idea of turning Taiwan’s jails into tourist attractions.

In addition, the people confined in such places should be referred to as "students" instead of "inmates," she said.


So not only jails will become a tourist attraction (?!!) people could visit before or after enjoying the 101 Tower in Taipei, but now a murderer is not anymore a murderer but… a student…

Did I miss something?
