The CEO of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Akwesi Agyemang said that measures are being put in place in order to ensure that musical concerts and events that will be held during the festive season happen under peaceful circumstances.

He has revealed that his management outfit is collaborating with event organizers- the Ghana Police Service and other relevant stakeholders to chalk out the upcoming Christmas events in a mannerly structure.

Speaking to TV3 and GhanWeb, Akwesi Agyemang emphasized that Ghana is ready to host the rest of the world for this festive season. He went ahead detailing what plans they have for Christmas joining hands with the Ghana Police Service to make provision for tighter security.

He said in his statement, “I mean we’ve done this for five years so when it comes Ghana we have a track record of that. We are working with the event organizers, and we’ve met with the IGP (George Akuffo Dampare), he asked that everybody present their security plan that will be tied to what the police will do. Also, they were going to give us coordinators for each region.”

“So if it’s the Ashanti region, all the event organizers, you know your points, person the number of men you need for the day and you also have to get your own security plan and they will work with you. We had a meeting with National Security and the hoteliers because people are coming, they will stay in hotels, they will stay in facilities that also need some kind of security.” As Christmas draws closer it is incumbent upon the Ghana Tourism Authority to put security in place during lives when the events take place.

Thailand Becomes Most Preferred Destination for Tourists: Agoda Reports

BY Sarmind SafiDec 8, 2023

The most preferred destinations for tourists traveling within their country as well as abroad remain a matter of trend and fluctuations. But one country that has seen a huge surge in inbound tourists is Thailand. Especially Indians who want a small break. This growth comes from Thailand's latest visa policy that allows visa-free entry to its visitors, one of the nationals being Indians. Thailand's Bangkok has stolen this coveted spot from Dubai, according to Agoda, an online travel platform. They analyzed the trends based on hotel bookings on their application. Ever since the government of Thailand has permitted visa-free entry for many countries including India, the country has seen a 26% increase in searches on Agoda and Indian tourists have found their favorite escape. Other countries that have recently waived the visa requirements for tourists of various nationals include Malaysia and Sri Lanka. Both of these countries are seeing renewed interest from tourists. The report says, “When it comes to international travel choices, Indians consistently favour short haul destinations across the region. Chart topper Bangkok and fifth most popular destination Pattaya are poised to further strengthen their appeal, with the recent announcement of visa-free travel for Indians to Thailand.” The report also said that, “The rankings with the most booked destinations on Agoda underscore a distinct inclination among Indians for tried-and-tested destinations, showcasing a preference for all-time favourites that have lots to offer to any type of traveller and no matter how frequently they are visited." Krishna Rathi, Agoda's country director for India, Maldives, and Sri Lanka says, "2023 has been an incredible year for travel in India. Agoda search numbers reveal growth on all levels: domestic, inbound, and outbound. I am excited to see how this trend will shape the travel industry in 2024. "Bangkok has been followed by Dubai, then Bali in the third and Singapore in the fourth place.
