Australian agents are seeing first-hand that the storm in Vanuatu has well and truly passed.
In a bid to remind the industry that the island nation is open for travellers, the tourism bureau has invited groups of agents to see the destination’s recovery four months after it was hit by category five Cyclone Pam.
In June, consultants from Flight Centre made the quick three and a half-hour flight to Vanuatu. This was followed by an exclusive famil invitation to ten Travel Counsellors last month.
The team from Travel Counsellors saw the best of Vanuatu from places to ‘jump’ to coral-fulled blue holes right up to zip-lining and watching active volcanoes.
The group enjoyed walks along the whitest and sandiest beaches while relaxing in the sunshine.
And after six days of holidaying in the country they all came to the same conclusion:
“Vanuatu is beautiful, the people are friendly and I can’t wait to go back.”
Vera Stojcevski, Travel Counsellors from Victoria, said the destination is suitable for all types of travellers, catering to honeymooners, retirees and friends travelling in groups.
Suzie Griffiths of NSW concurred, saying it is a convenient destination for Australians keen on enjoying ‘a slice of paradise’.
“I’d recommend Vanuatu as a top honeymoon destination as well as a fabulous place for people with young children who want to take advantage of the family friendly resorts that offer a variety of fun activities for kids.”
