Accra, Nov. 13, GNA - Frommer travel, a global rating agency in the tourism industry, known for its credibility and authenticity has named Ghana among the top 10 tourism destination for 2012.
Mr Julius Debrah, Executive Director of the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA), who announced this at a press conference at the weekend, said Frommer reached out to people to find out where they wanted to be in the coming year and Ghana was listed in the top 10 preferred destinations.
He said: “Ghana provided a perfect introduction to African Travel…but for anybody seeking a holistic experience that embraces traditional and contemporary culture as well as beaches and safaris, Ghana’s microcosmic travel circuit is the perfect African Primer."
Frommer serves as a travel guide and one of the best selling travel guides in America.
Mr Debrah who expressed excitement over Ghana’s selection said the country deserved the acknowledgment since it hosts varied and unique tourists attractions which could be found nowhere in the world.
“In Kumasi, the Addae Kese festival held at Manhyia Palace, pays a dazzling homage to the Ashanti King, Osei Tutu II, the city also hosts the Kejetia Market with its labyrinth of 10,000 stalls and surrounded by communities that are famous for the traditional kente cloth weavers."
The Tourism Authority Boss noted that Ghana’s recognition on the international tourism circles had given impetus to the hard work that was done by his organisation and the citizenry in general over the year
