The Georgian National Tourism Administration on Wednesday launched a new website offering information on tourism offerings and trip planning for visitors interested in exploring the country.
GNTA Head Maia Omiadze presented georgia.travel, saying users would be able to plan journeys on an interactive map by choosing a destination, before also discovering a “variety of interesting and practical” options for their travels.
“Through our new platform, we anticipate to attract a lot more visitors in the reality of a global digital transformation”, Omiadze added.
The new gateway features around 3,200 articles in both Georgian and English about significant tourist attractions, a calendar of interesting tourist events throughout Georgia as well as a centralised platform for intercity transport, plans for hikes and walking adventures, the Administration said.
Visitors can also filter locations and visitor destinations, add them to their wishlist and view calendars of events hosted across the country and relevant to visitors.
The tourism body said it was collaborating with major online visitor platforms like booking.com, tripadvisor.com and wikiloc.com, adding it had recorded 18 million unique visits to the new portal from 200 countries since its launch.
