The mid-ocean island of La Reunion in the Indian Ocean, a co-organizer of the “Carnaval International de Victoria” that is staged annually in the Seychelles, used their carnival parade to showcase their culture and diversity of their people.
Reunion island is not only a tropical paradise in the Indian Ocean. The Tourism Board likes to communicate about the protected lagoon, the mountains that are a UNESCO Heritage site, and the cultures, religions, and ethnic groups coming from all over the world who live in harmony.
After launching its iPhone application in May this year, La Reunion Tourism has come out with a new application that is also compatible to the iPad device.
