Following record results for tourism this year, Portugal is firmly on the international radar.
Travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler is predicting great things for 2017 while business publication Forbes lists Portugal on its “best places to do business” list, ahead of the United States of America.
As Dinheiro Vivo explains, Forbes’ criteria is based on a country’s economic policies, GDP and taxation levels.
With the US placed 23rd in a list headed by Sweden and New Zealand (with UK in the first five), Portugal this year comes 19th just as hoteliers are predicting even more growth in international tourism for the year ahead.
Singing Portugal’s praises, and talking about its “groundbreaking architecture on every corner” and wealth of cultural initiatives, Condé Nast Traveler also lists Azores on its list of best places to travel in 2017, suggesting the far-flung archipelago may “supplant Iceland (the country) as the place everyone is visiting”.
