Greece expecting a massive surge in tourism 2017

Published on : Thursday, May 11, 2017

Greece expectingThe old harbor at Skopelos Island located in the eastern coast of Greece is about to experience the onset of its tourist season as it often does, in a relaxed fashion every year. In any great tavern, visitors can choose a pick and enjoy the sun and watch fishing boats undulating smoothly on the water and served with tzatziki by smiling waiters.

In few weeks’ time from now, the scenario will change as huge number of tourists arrives, the restaurants get jam-packed and the staffs rush from one table to the other. However, the tourist dollars they earn are seen as a major solution to meet   the financial crisis and years of severity budgets of the government. They are aware that it will take more than just one full year to get back on track. Last year, Greece set up a record of 27.5 million guests and the country expects up to 30 million visitors this year.

We’ll see. Siga, siga (take it easy),” Rigas Gripiotis says. He does not want to jinx it, but the grin on the young cook’s face betrays optimism. “Skopelos is not Mykonos or Santorini, where there is always a lot going on,” he says, explaining his reservations.
