The beauty of the Seychelles has been credited on a regular basis in some of the most important worldwide publications. Journalists, writers, and photographers have flown all the way to Seychelles for tourism, environment, or economic scoops. In 2011, it was “Time Travel” that released one of its very first articles on Seychelles.
Cousine Island, the Seychelles Birdlife Heaven, made the lead article in “Time Magazine.” Now one year from this publication, Seychelles makes another splash in the prestigious magazine, “Time Business Chronicle.” The article, “Riding a new wave,” explores Seychelles’ rebounding economy climate, following the implementation of the Economic Reform Program.
President James Michel’s official visit in London in 2012 came as the base for the story developed and published by “Time Business.” The article showcased new angles for looking at Seychelles. It is articles such as these that Seychelles’ stance in increasing its international profile to attract potential investors, the country’s success story in the fight against piracy in the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles revolutionizing economic landscape with the connection of the fiber-optic cable, that are some of the stories included the two-page article. In the tourism sector, “Something for everyone” is the headline running the story in “Time Business” that captivates the readers, with the beauty of the Seychelles making it a top holiday destination.
The article states: “As a leisure destination, Seychelles has exhausted every synonym for paradise. Scattered in 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, many of Seychelles’ pristine, sugar-white beaches, such as the famed source d argent in La Digue, Anse Lazio in Praslin, and Anse Soleil in Mahe, are framed by dramatic granite boulders that create a unique landscape…” quoted the editor of the article published in “Time Business.”
The Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, is quoted in the article as the defender of the Seychelles stance in regards to its tourism strategies. Minister St.Ange has come out in that article explaining the Seychelles’ position is for being not only a high-end destination, but being also accessible to travelers from every segment of the market.
“… Of course, we have very exclusive resorts, but Seychelles boasts all ranges of accommodations. Plenty of small guest houses have been licensed this year, offering not only accommodation at very reasonable prices but also a cultural experience…,” the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture is quoted as saying.
