Let’s focus on the day - 25 January 2024, it’s National Tourism Day! However, regarding tourism, the news is filled with - shall we say - ‘discussions’ about certain islands in the Indian Ocean and where you should go for a getaway.
Worry not, we are not here to get political!
Instead, let’s get our travelling pants on and look at some of the funkiest tourism ads and campaigns that got us in vacation mode!
Often, people feel that planning the trip is harder than the trip itself. Selecting the destination itself is a debate with your friends, family and even yourself.
But there’s a solution: Surprise trip.
A survey of 27,000 travellers in 33 countries by Booking.com found that 52% are "keen" to book a surprise trip where "everything down to the destination is unknown until arrival"
More and more companies planning surprise trips have come up recently, and they are being well received.
