04 03 2008
A top holiday destination for 2008 will be the country of Greece, new research has indicated.
According to lastminute.com, Greece will be a favoured holiday spot for travellers this summer.
One main reason behind the country's increased popularity in 2008 is said to be competitive prices.
The comment comes as the Association of Greek Tourist Enterprises expressed hope that tourist arrivals in the country will reach 19.4 million ahead of the year 2010.
"We are expecting Greece to do very well this summer as prices are particularly competitive. Agadir in Morocco and Spain are also expected to do very well," John Bevan, managing director of lastminute.com UK emphasised.
He added that Cape Verde is "increasingly popular" and that China is gaining attention as a holiday destination thanks to its role as host for the coming Olympic Games.
