Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, was joined by Sherin Naiken, the CEO of the Tourism Board, to say congratulations to the 6 establishments which have been recognized by Trip Advisor. “Everyone knows that when you receive such a recommendation from Trip Advisor, it is the tourists coming to Seychelles who have told the world through such a social platform that you stand out as a tourism establishment. They are the users of our tourism establishments, and they have now passed their judgement on our tourism establishments. Trip Advisor has on their side echoed the praise of the tourists who visited Seychelles after these tourists had dedicated time and effort to post their impressions on its social network.
