Condé Nast Traveler Urges Tourists to Rescue Greece

285d4-greece“What Greece needs now, more than ever, are tourism dollars — so don’t cancel your trip just yet,” Condé Nast Traveler advises.
Prominent travel website Condé Nast Traveler followed the Guardian’s footsteps and invited readers to visit Greece despite the crisis in an article entitled “Why we’re still travelling to Greece this summer.” Writer Mark Ellwood noted that the country is in dire need of tourism and urged travelers not to cancel trips.
Capital controls, political uncertainty, anti-austerity demonstrations, refugee influx are the reasons many people have been forced to cancel their holidays in Greece.
The article writer compares Greece to Thailand after the 2004 tsunami, where tourists were mocked for staying after the natural disaster and yet their presence is what contributed towards the country’s reconstruction. Ellwood states that booking a trip to Greece isn’t solely a do-good gesture either as the cost of a holiday there is even lower now.
Ellwood states that tourists should take cash with them and to not be biased when dealing with Greek people.
