Tourism in Portugal is changing
Portugal is fashionable for sightseeing. The phrase has been said and repeated in recent times. But if it’s true that the Portuguese tourism is fashionable, it is also true that tourism trends are changing. If before the tourists were heading in droves to Algarve to enjoy the sun and beaches, now are increasingly looking for new regions, different hotels, returning to the simplicity, genuineness, new experiences and sensations.
"It is not surprising that Portugal is fashionable. It is because the Portuguese have managed to distinguish itself by making different from others, innovating while respecting the essence of what is Portuguese. And they did it without imitating others, tastefully and creatively. "
João Cotrim Figueiredo, Ex-President of Tourism of Portugal, thus explains the rekindling passion of tourists in Portugal.
