Very interesting! As being located in Ecuador, of course I had to compare Ecuador with our neighbour Colombia. They don't even seem to be that far apart except for contribution to employment and the total amount of visitors. The GDP contribution is almost the same (5.3% versus 5.4%). Unexpected for me.

Fire-breathing dragons, incestuous twins and a clash of steel swords. HBO's Game of Thrones, based on the book series by George R R Martin, has become a surprising hit among viewers, and as TV fans remain glued to their screens every week, it seems as though tourism figures in Croatia are on the rise. You may be wondering where the correlation lies, but this runaway success has posed further debate on the positive impact media can have on local tourism.

Do you feel discouraged after watching incidents like #MH370  unfold on the news?

"The peninsula’s cliff-lined Black Sea beaches, health resorts, and vineyards draw nearly 6 million tourists each year in the summer months. That number is projected to drop by at least 30 percent this season. For the more than 100,000 people who rely on the four months of tourism for their yearly income, this is very bad news."
