We could all do with a holiday but how’s your luck with this one?



A 4-year-old boy has won the use of an uninhabited tropical island, with white sand beaches and clear turquoise waters, in a Taiwan lottery aimed at boosting spending during an economic downturn.



I just can’t imagine a 4 year old boy rocking up to the newsagent and buying the tickets with his pocket money. I don’t know about the laws where you live but in my neck of the woods he’s to young to gamble and too young to know what the global meltdown is about.
Good luck to them

The Taiwanese have been holding out on more tropical smaller islands! Attack!

I'd like to take the opportunity to advocate an increase in spending on 4yo boys

He can only visit with up to 7 family members.
5 times for up to 3 days.
That would make me depressed having to leave.
Id rather not go at all

That's just teasing.

Anyone tell me how buying a lottery ticket and giving money back to the government helps the economy. To stimulate we need to buy stuff to get business going.

Hi Iamonlyhuman
Now why didn’t I see that – Good thinking
They will need some camping gear as well by the sound of it.
