Seychelles 'are a romantic paradise'

Article content

23 November 2009

The Seychelles have been described as a romantic paradise.

Writing for Suite 101, Chris Marais said the islands situated in the Indian Ocean score ten out of ten for those looking for escapism.

He also claimed that the destination boasts some of the most romantic spots in the world.

Mr Marais explained that Victoria - the capital city of the Seychelles - reflects its mix of British and French colonialist history.

It includes mansions, museums, seminaries, a traditional English courthouse and various shops.

The capital, which is described as one of the smallest in the world, also lays claim to the island's only permanent set of traffic lights.

On top of this, it has a silver clock tower, a market and an establishment called the Pirates Arms, where locals gather to socialise.

In related news, the Seychelles Tourism Board recently announced that it is concentrating on attracting high-end holidaymakers to the area so that the islands do not become overcrowded.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19474131-ADNFCR
