A twitter poll by Qatar Airways indicates out of 3808 voters, 73% would choose the Maldives for their ideal 2-day getaway. Meanwhile, 14% of voters choose Zanzibar while 12% choose Bodrum.

One Twitter user from Zanzibar pointed out on the poll they would choose the Maldives as their second destination. Meanwhile, a user from the Maldives indicated they’ll prefer Zanzibar as their second destination. Of course, the data from the poll is not an official representation of public opinion. And likewise, twitter polls are not scientific since they are not systematically conducted and therefore cannot represent public opinion.

However, the Maldives has become an ideal destination for many travelers. According to Google’s Year in Search 2019, Maldives has grown to become the favorite vacation destination for US holidaymakers. In addition to that, according to recent data from Google Trends, the Maldives is the Europeans’ top holiday destination for 2021.

Promoting the Maldives

Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC) continues the effort to promote the Maldives in different markets. Most recently, the promotion body has begun advertising on the 360° TV Channel of Russia. The advertisement will aid in promoting travel and give a message to the hopeful travelers to ‘Visit Maldives Soon’.

Meanwhile, leading travel agent Resort Life Travel is promoting the Maldives with Billboards in urban areas all around the central-Europe markets alongside cocktail events with prospective travel partners in the region. Additionally, the travel agent has prepared to host a largescale event in Ukraine on 19th September 2020 to promote the Maldives. The roadshow is expected to have over 500 invitees making it a historical milestone for Resort Life Travel.

Tourist Arrivals

Arrival figures indicate 5,177 tourists visited the Maldives from 15 July 2020 to 15 August 2020. Newly-appointed tourism minister Dr. Abdulla Mausoom revealed an ambitious goal to welcome 500,000 in 2020. Minister further indicated 120,000 is the lowest figure for the remainder of the year.
