Holidays To Tunisia Set To Become More Popular
If you've been alive in 2011 you can't have missed endless news reports, bulletins and documentaries on the "Arab Spring". From Tunisia in the North Western tip of Africa to Syria in the heart of the Middle East people have been rising up against their leaders. And it all started in Tunisia.
There's no doubt that the unrest has caused difficulties for the tourism agencies of those countries and there's no denying that as a result of the uprisings tourists have favoured other warm destinations like Turkey instead of going to places like Tunisia and Egypt, but Tunisia's National Tourist Office is hoping that 2012 will become a bumper year for holidays to Tunisia.
The Tunisian National Tourist Office said recently that unlike some North African nations, its country is one of the safest in the world and offers a whole host of summer activities for tourists.
"The main goal now for Tunisia is to send this message out to the world that Tunisia is a stable country and a generally democratic country" said Sami Tounsi who is the trade manager at the tourist office at last week's World Travel Market held in London.
He added that whilst the revolution in January has caused the country's visitor numbers to fall by around 45 per cent, with the west now supporting the country's new regime (and hopeful transformation into a fully fledged democracy) holiday numbers will being to flourish in 2012.
In June this year, Tunisia began its campaign to win back British tourists by launching an advertisement campaign, thought to be controversial by some, which mocked many of the misconceptions that the country thinks the Brits had during the previous political campaign.
There is no doubt in our minds, at The Travel Wizard, that Tunisia has a great deal to offer. So why not take a break and see what its all about? Try out search facility to search for your cheap holidays and holiday deals.
