Travellers World magazine organizes a voting systen by its readers to name the Top 100 Places of the World. Seychelles was also voted as the sixth Best Island in the Island Category ahead of Mauritius, which was listed in seventh place.
The magazine was issued to coincide with the ITB Tourism Trade Fair in Berlin, Germany, which was attended by a large delegation from the Seychelles including Alain St.Ange, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, who said that it was always nice to receive World Awards for one’s unique selling points.
“We have always known that we have the best beaches, which are lapped all year long by our clear turquoise blue seas. Now we also have the World’s Best Resort; this is a plus coming at the right moment as we are establishing our very own Seychelles brand of tourism, and North Island fits well in our brand of hotels,” Alain St.Ange said.
