“Increased promotional activities and partnership with the local Chinese trade in the market over the past 2 years keeps showing positive signs of visibility and interest for Seychelles as one of the newest destinations for the world’s largest growing outbound markets. This could be seen throughout the fair with many agents marketing Seychelles, such as Ctrip (one of the leading travel agencies in China), promoting and introducing the destination to the public on the central stage,” said Mr. Lai-Lam.

“Our efforts have not gone unnoticed over the years, as Seychelles was awarded the Best Honeymoon Tour Destination for 2013,” said Mrs. Elsia Grandcourt, CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board.
