For too long Greece was featured in the news for negative reasons regarding its economy and unemployment, which turned many travelers off the idea of visiting this wonderful nation. Many of the country’s issues, however, have now been resolved and Greece is very much having a phoenix from the flames moment. It is precisely for this reason that this year Greece should very much be on your radar when planning a vacation, and here are even more reasons why you need to go.
Greece has such an incredibly diverse range of accommodation throughout the mainland and its islands and there is something for every type of traveler. For the ultimate luxury experience, there are a great many hotels throughout the Greek isles which cater to every need, have a look at this one in Mykonos for example. Budget travelers can make the most of a wide range of hostels and cheap rentals and families can hire entire villas on the beachside for the perfect vacation. Prices are very reasonable regardless of your budget and the country is famed for its attention to detail when it comes to service.
Greece has long been a popular summer holiday destination but in reality, you can visit the country at any time of the year and still be able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and warm weather. There may be peak seasons here but even if you travel off-peak you can still anticipate the country to be firing on all cylinders in terms of the tourism infrastructure which you can find all year long.
Back in 2016, the country embarked upon a campaign to try and drive more tourism to the more out-of-reach Greek backwaters and islands and 4 years on this has been a great success. There are many seaplane companies which offer routes to some of the smaller and less well-trodden islands which gives you the perfect chance to enjoy virgin territory which you wouldn’t have been able to in the past. If you are looking to discover somewhere new then this is the perfect place to do so.
As part of their economic recovery, the Greek government placed a high focus on tourism as a way to bounce back and in order to bring in that tourism they offered a range of incentives for the industry to lower its prices. This, of course, means that tourists can count on getting much more bang for their buck when spending on food, service, experiences, and accommodation.
This is a region that is bathed in the rich history and culture of its ancient past, giving you the perfect opportunity to discover some breathtaking sites. From the world-famous Acropolis in Athens to UNESCO world heritage sites and Byzantine ruins dotted throughout the 600+ islands in Greece, history lovers will not be short of places to explore and experience, regardless of where in the country they happen to be.
Greece has very much bounced back from its troubles making this the perfect year to visit.
