Tunisia had a successful summer season…

As several media outlets publish pictures of “eerie abandoned hotels”…Tunisia hopes to continue making posting tourism gains.

Tunisia’s Tourism Revenues Grow 42% in 7 Months

The Tunisian Tourism Ministry said that 4.4 million foreign tourists visited the country from January 1 through July 31 this year, up 23% compared with the same period in 2017.

The minister added that revenues from the tourism sector reached 1.7 billion Tunisian dinars (about 554 million euros), up 42% on the same period last year.

According to the minister’s estimate, at the end of the year, a total of over 8 million tourists will visit Tunisia. A reported 7 million visited in 2017 and 6 million in 2016.

The tourism sector in Tunisia is in progress towards rebalancing.

Media Posts Negative Pictures…

Recently, several media outlets including The Sun, Daily Mail, Mirror and others have published pictures showcasing some Tunisian hotels that went out of business after the 2015, Sousse attack.

Here are a few examples:

Tunisia has come a long way since the 2015 Sousse attacks! 

@DavidSecurity’s Perspective…

Tunisian tourism was strongly affected by terrorist operations in 2015, in which a tourist hotel was attacked in Sousse (west the Tunisian capital) leading to the death of 22 foreign tourists.

Tunisian Security Forces have proven effective and their efforts have paid off in many ways.  Most importantly is their ability to foil plots that have prevented other incidents from taking place in the country.

This relative peace & stability has enabled other countries to either remove or relax their travel warnings/advise thus essentially providing foreigners a “green light” to visit.

  1. Media always do write ups with such negative proper ganda.. Tunisia had security always,when I was there. Its sad about what happened, I was in Tunisia then but it won’t deter me from going to Tunisia. The people of all Tunisia have also suffered, very much because of what happened, business, hotels,shops,all lost everything. Poverty on country upsetting…. But with your posts about Tunisia, on Facebook media it get it out there Tunisia is safe also a very beautiful country. I’m in the UK and sometimes don’t feel safe yet in Tunisia I never felt fear I feel safer.. Tunisia is my second home.. My husband is Tunisian,😍
