June 25, 2013 Tourist Boards No Comments Email Email

The annual Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands Carnival that is staged in the Seychelles is today regarded as a success story that is increasing visibility of the Indian Ocean Region and in so doing for Seychelles.

Golf travelerThe Hong Kong Tourism Magazine has just released has a full colour picture of the Brazilian Delegation parading in the carnival in Seychelles  as the picture on its front cover with another full page with four pictures of the Brazilians, the Notting Hill Carnival of the UK and two Seychelles delegations parading in the 2013 carnival on an inside page.

Over and above the magazine also carts four pages about holidaying in Seychelles and playing golf at the Constance Lemuria Resort of Praslin. “What we are seeing is exactly why we are hosting an annual carnival in Seychelles. We wanted to get the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands more known, as we wanted Seychelles seen in the four corners of the world. The large bank of International Press who descend on the Seychelles continue to position the Indian Ocean Islands as a tourism region with a difference as they write about the beautiful Seychelles and the unique region’s carnival of carnivals that we stage in Seychelles. The press covering the 2013 carnival also cover the work by the co-hosts of the 2013 carnival  (Seychelles, La Reunion, Madagascar and Zimbabwe) to be united to promote the Indian Ocean Region and their twin center holiday approach with Africa” Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture.

Press from the world over continue to praise the Seychelles for successfully organizing a carnival that now appears on the International List of Carnivals.
