Published on : Monday, December 18, 2017

greeceGreece is a destination that entices visitors from all across the globe. According to the Ministry of Tourism, the current year has been phenomenal in terms of international arrivals and might outpace 2016’s record of 28 million visitors with an influx 30 million entries.



Antiquities, sun-splashed sandy beaches, alabaster villages with panoramic vistas of the vast azure Agean backdrop since the 1950s have been some of the premium attractions for the travellers across the globe making them visit Greece time and again. Adding to it is the mild Mediterranean climate which helped to develop the modern culinary revolution.



The usual destinations for the leisure travellers include Athens, Santorini, and Mykonos but this year, the less sought after choices have also seen rise in tourists’ footfall such as Lesvos and Samos in the North Aegean; Kavala in Eastern Macedonia; the island of Kos in the South Aegean; the Ionian islands of Zakynthos and Kefalonia. Greeceā€™s second largest cities of Thessaloniki and its largest island of Crete are other big winners in tourism.



With such a demand from the worldwide travellers, the tourism authority is planning to promote the country as a year-round destination. They are thinking of new thematic travel experiences which might entice visitors and help Greece promote sustainability while showcasing the myriad of possibilities in a 365-day with a concentration on less visited destinations. Cultural tourism, religious and pilgrimage tours, cruising and touring the awe-inspiring islands by yacht, hiking, trekking, and biking, scuba diving and wellness travel are the other scope of development that the authority is looking into. It is thus, one of the ideal destination for both adventure and luxury travellers.
