Tourist flow slightly on the rise in the Great Isle26/04/2010 | 16:15:15
The number of tourists having made for Madagascar has enjoyed a plus 20% increase during the first four months of the year, compared to the same period in 2009.
Professionals are recovering hope anew although nothing is yet to be held for granted.
The hotel rooms booking rate is now fluctuating between 30% and 50%, a poor score for tourism operators. So much more is being required for long term expections.
The sector's fragility is no more denied. Since 2009, the political crisis has been taking a significant toll from tourism professionals. Many hotels have been pushed to lay workers off or to shut doors.
In Mahajanga, the city of flowers, the leading beach of the chart is undisputedly the Grand Pavois, merely six miles away to the North of the city center. The popularity of the Grand Pavois is just as large among locals as holiday makers literally rushing there like a raid party.[See]
The number of local and foreign tourists making for the seaside of Toamasina city is said to have been receding. Local professionals consequently got a move on to restore the eastern coast's fame to what it used to be, hoping this recovery to tip the scales.[See]
The Tourism Office seated in Antananarivo city also offers treks and visits of the villages of Akamasoa, its brand new type of product. Visitors get the opportunity to discover Father Pedros running charity projects live. Far beyond unusually petty houses and walks over the hill, a taste of a developing humanitarian rescue plan is awaiting. God helps those who help their own selves, does he not? "In Akamasoa, we have given the evidence that faith, passion, goal and will are pledges for solutions to whatever problem comes forth!" Father Pedro dixit.[See]
