Tourism has always been a billion-dollar industry all over the world with more and more countries opening their doors to the economic opportunity. However, with hundreds of countries competing for the attention and destination of jet-setters and middle-class travelers, how does one stand out? Just like any product, one should have a brilliant slogan to sell it!
Family Break Finder, a UK travel site, collected all the world’s English slogans from tourism boards and conveniently placed them on a map. While some were catchy enough to deserve a second look, others were just plain dumbfounding in both good and bad ways.
Travel Slogans all over the world.
