Paphos has hosted 3.9 million tourists in the first three quarters of the year, a 7.1% increase on last year’s figures, of whom half came from the United Kingdom and about a third from Russia, Cyprus Tourism Organisation boss Angelos Loizou said on Saturday.
PAPHOS has secured four new entries on the national list of Intangible Cultural Heritage, which is under the Cyprus national commission for Unesco and the government cultural services.
Iris Gardens is a very swish, very attractive up market development with cascading infinity pools, meandering communal gardens and a myriad of architectural details that make Iris Gardens a super appealing lifestyle destination.
The Cyprus government has revised the citizenship-by-investment scheme in order to attract more non- EU entrepreneurs and investors to engage them in the Cyprus economy. The key issue is to ensure that the investors have Cyprus as their prime residence as well as their main economic interests and activity being on the island also.
In 2017 Paphos is announced as the Cultural Capital of Europe and this is the most outstanding moment in Paphos Modern history.
Paphos will host a very important tourism conference in December which has attracted more than a thousand participants and Tour Operators.
Paphos is planning to increase promotion of the district and has drawn up an action plan for 2017, which includes improvements in the use of social media and other promotional outlets, according to an announcement by the local tourism board.
