Majorca Daily Bulletin in the World Travel Market

World Travel Market

Discover the other side of Majorca, the side you have probably not seen before. This was the message from the Balearic tourism authorities in a presentation to the British media on low season tourism at the Balearic stand at the World Travel Market tourism fair in London. It seems rather remarkable that even though British tourists have been coming to Majorca for more than 50 years (in big numbers), there is still so much of the island that they are not familiar with. The local authorities have produced a video which centres on the joys of Majorca in the winter from hiking to cycling. And of course there is so much more. But in the same way as there is more to Majorca than just the sun and the sea there is more in the winter than just cycling and hiking. If Majorca wants more winter tourists then the local fairs and cuisine and of course the usually mild weather need to play a central role. We all know that Majorca can easily be an all year around holiday destination but a central plan is needed which takes into account everything from cycling to fairs. Sport is a fantastic winter holiday pursuit on the island but so is a nice menu del dia in a restaurant after a trip to a local market or fair. The other side of Majorca probably has more than the side which is known to all. It is amazing that there is still so much to discover.

Ah good - have they finally managed to produce a multi-lingual official website listing all winter events along with one-click booking options? Where will we find this website - or have they just been going through the motions on another "jolly"?

"Discover the other side of Majorca, the side you have probably not seen before."

This message should be directed at your own newspaper, Jason. Barely, if ever, do you mention the other side of the island and little is reported on.

You do know, don't you, that life does actually exist beyond Manacor and Inca, right?
