Traveling to the islands’ main tourist destinations has long been a popular tourist destination for Tānanga, the country’s largest island, but there are now signs that Tahiti is entering its golden age as an island resort.
Travelers are taking advantage of the island’s new tourism infrastructure, which allows visitors to stay in resorts, and some resort operators are expanding to more areas of the islands, including Tātaki.
The New Zealand Tourism Council is looking to attract tourists to the country, with a proposal to allow tourist visas to be issued in Tābana and Tālō.
The council’s chief executive officer, Andrew Norgrove, said tourists were taking advantage by visiting the islands more than ever.
“They’re using the islands to stay connected, so we’re finding a lot of people who’re coming into Tahiti because they want to stay, but they don’t have the money to pay for a hotel or a holiday,” he said.
The island’s tourism boom has helped the economy of the tiny nation of 2.2 million people, which is ranked seventh in the world, grow by a healthy 13.6 percent annually since 2007, according to the Ministry of Economic Development.
Tourism is a key source of income for the country and has increased significantly in recent years, driven by the arrival of new tourists.
In the last year alone, the tourism industry has expanded by a further 14.4 percent.
Norgroth said the new tourist infrastructure on Tāi’s islands was helping to increase tourist arrivals.
“The increase in tourist numbers is also a reflection of the growth in the tourism sector as a whole,” he explained.
Tourism’s popularity also helped boost the economy.
The tourism industry accounted for 10.5 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2011, the latest year for which figures are available, according the Ministry.
“Treaty Day is a big time for tourism, and it is a very important time to come back to Tahiti,” said Norgoth. He said Tāmau is a great place to stay and that the islanders were willing to pay extra for the privilege of visiting.
“It’s been a very good thing to see the tourist industry expand,” he added.
“And we have a very welcoming population here.
It’s also been a great opportunity for the local economy.”
Tourism is an important part of the economy, but it’s a big part of it that’s being exploited by a very small number of people,” he concluded.
New tourism industry is opening up New Zealand to more tourists with the announcement that Tānekia Hotel will be able to issue tourist visas on a wider range of sites.
The new tourist visas will allow tourists to visit more of Tahiti’s attractions, including the tourist areas of Taipū and Taka.
There is also more room for people to rent accommodation, which means that more people will be visiting Tahiti, Norgrave said.
New Zealanders can apply for a tourist visa online, by calling 0800-859-1110 and they will be sent an email when their application is received.
“If we do that, then we can have an incredible tourism industry that we want to see.””
We’re going to see a big increase in visitor numbers, but we are also going to have to work hard to make sure that we’re meeting the requirements of the legislation,” Norgreth said.
