Ireland has been named one of the top ten ‘most anticipated destinations’ at a travel awards ceremony in China.
Iris Wang, Tourism Ireland, is pictured accepting the award for Ireland being named one of the ‘top ten most anticipated destinations’ for Chinese travellers, at WITrip’s travel awards ceremony in Shanghai.
The award was presented to Tourism Ireland in Shanghai, at a ceremony organised by WITrip – a high-end travel magazine. The awards celebrate excellence in travel and the winners are voted by readers of the magazine, as well as by a jury of travel experts. At the ceremony, Ireland was named one of the ‘top ten most anticipated destinations’ for Chinese travellers, along with countries like France, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, South Africa and Montenegro.
Tourism Ireland also recently scooped another award in China – at the 16th annual National Tourism Fashion Awards in Beijing. National Tourism is a well-known Chinese travel trade publication and the accolade was for the ‘Top 10 Destination Promotion Breakthrough Award’. Tourism Ireland was named with other national tourist boards, including VisitBritain, Tourism Australia, Destination Canada, Visit Hungary and the Department of Culture and Tourism in Abu Dhabi – in the category which recognises ‘outstanding marketing efforts’.
