The National Tourism Office is hoping to gradually overcome the past difficulties and boost recovery for the sector. The political crisis which began in 2009 and its social side effects has actually nearly been paralysing these activities for a while. Hotels have been having to close doors, others had to be sold out, professionals are however keeping the chin up.
Madagascar´s record number of tourists was reached for the first in time in 2008 with 300 000. The very same island laboriously attracted merely 150 000 tourists a year during the latest couple of years following the crisis.
