Paris Tourist Smile

Filed under: Introduction — parto @ 8:30 am

France has been faced with a fall in tourist numbers due to the financial crisis and a reputation for unfriendliness, the Paris tourist board has made a simple request to the city’s residents: smile. Visitors to Paris, the world most visited city, have fallen 17 per cent since January compared with the same period in 2008.

To counter the slump and boost revenues, the tourist board has sent up stands manned by teams of ‘smile ambassadors’ to welcome holiday makers at the city’s most popular spots To heed to the call hundreds of roller-skaters formed a giant smile in Place Vendome in the city centre on a recent Sunday.

In May a questionnaire carried out by travel site Trip Advisor found Paris to be the most over-rated city in Europe, citing its high and unpleasant residents. The French people were asked to play their part in attracting more tourists to France.

Paris is doing more than trying to make its resideents smile to draw in more visitors. It is now possible to enjoy a virtual vist of the Champs-Elysees, the so called ‘ most beautiful avenue in the world’.
