‘Adren­a­line tourism’ is at­tract­ing the crowds to N.Wales

North Wales Weekly News - - YOUR VIEWS -

gen­er­at­ing coun­tries for over­seas tourism to Wales were the Repub­lic of Ire­land, France, Ger­many and USA.

“The team at our tourist in­for­ma­tion cen­tres have also no­ticed an in­crease in over­seas vis­i­tors from Aus­tralia and New Zealand.

“There’s been an in­crease in young fam­i­lies vis­it­ing from Euro­pean coun­tries such as Ger­many.

“Th­ese vis­i­tors tend to be in­de­pen­dent trav­ellers rather than part of an or­gan­ised tour.

“Ger­many is a tar­get mar­ket for Visit Wales, and hope­fully more vis­i­tors will want to see and en­joy the tremen­dous facil- ities we have here.

“The out­door ac­tiv­i­ties and attractions now of­fered in North Wales play a large part in the ap­peal, and Surf Snowdonia will be another at­trac­tion to add to the list soon.

“We also can’t un­der­es­ti­mate the power of ma­jor events such as the Wales Rally GB, Tour of Bri­tain and in­ter­na­tional rugby to raise the area’s pro­file over­seas – this can only be good for lo­cal business and tourism.”

Toby Tun­stall, chair­man of Conwy’s Cham­ber of Trade, said he no­ticed an in­crease in af­flu­ent Rus­sian, Chi­nese and Ja­panese vis­i­tors com­ing to the town last sum­mer.
