At the right time when gloomy news of economic hardships, corruption, mismanagement along with other vices dominates, reports of any type or sort of national breakthrough in virtually any sphere will always come as a soothing balm. For all of us, the frequent exploits in sports, global athletics especially, have already been a breath of oxygen.
However, a significant forex earner for the economy, tourism, is not left behind. This right time around, the coastal circuit is wallowing in the excitement of excellent news which should see a lot more visitors drawn to our shores.
Kenya’s beaches on the Indian Ocean, which certainly are a huge attraction in the market, and whose fortunes have already been improving steadily, because of improved security, have already been voted on the list of world’s best.
The national country was honoured after impressing a panel of just one 1,000 of the travel industry’s top professionals. Five of the beaches — Diani, Mombasa, Watamu, Chale Island and Shela — feature in the most notable 50 African Beaches Category by Flightnetwork.com, an online travel publication, which ranked 400 of the very best beaches.
This vote of confidence by people well-versed in the travel industry should bear a lot more fruit therefore ratings are keenly accompanied by would-be tourists and seasoned travellers in deciding their next destinations.
Being chosen on the list of very best is really a clear indication that there surely is the right work being done.
However, it will be foolhardy to rest on our laurels now, believing that, having climbed to the most notable in the market, we shall remain even though we don&rsquo there;t work hard.
Nothing could be more misleading. Cleanliness and enhanced security are on the list of factors which were pivotal in this success.
The challenge isn’t to strive and keep maintaining the high standards just, but surpass the heights attained to help keep the competition away actually.
