Greek Tourism Makes News in the Economist
Greece may be expecting a record breaking 30 million tourists this year, but the Economist is saying that convincing them to dig deeper into their pockets will be the challenge ahead.
Under the title “Kalo Taxidi! Greek Tourism” (Bon Voyage), the Economist says Greece is set to welcome more travelers from the UK, Russia and Germany, at top destinations including Mykonos and Santorini.
The magazine goes on to refer to friendlier prices at “hot” destinations like Corfu and Crete, compared to rival destination Spain, and adds that vacationers are now opting to stay fewer nights and consume less compared to 12 years ago.
The London-based weekly magazine underlines the potential of Greek tourism, attributing in great part even further growth to the Fraport’s management of 14 regional airports.
