Romanians Spend Holidays in Austria and on Sunny Islands
"Austria is the most popular travel destination during winter holidays, as a rising number of Romanians choose the Tyrol or Salzburg ski travel packages, according to the data released by travel agencies.

Romanian tourists choose the travel packages to Austria mainly because of prices, which are similar to those from Prahova Valley. Another reason is the lack of snow on the ski slopes in Romania.

'However, all the packages offered in Prahova Valley for this winter season have been sold out,' says Lucian Boronea, general manager of the travel agency Accent Travel & Events from Bucharest."

Isn't this fun? There still is an extremely large number of tourists spending their holidays in Romania. Why, I have to ask? Poorer services, same prices, why not try something new? That is so common of us Romanians sometimes, of two choices, we take the closer one, regardless of what we get for our money. With everything sold out, no wonder those working in this industry are not going to improve their services...

Fragments from a ZF story.

    As you mentioned in a previous posts, 80% of the hotels/motels/cabanas in Romania have only one or two stars. So my wild guess is that Romanians don't know the meaning of quality services. Mix that with a tendency of our beloved people to think that everything abroad is expensive and you no longer have to wonder why Prahova Valley is sold out, although it has become a tradition for it to be at least as expensive as the packages abroad (I think a year or two ago it was actually cheaper to go abroad).
    Now my question to you (and yes, you may call me old-fashioned), whatever happened to good old "spending quality time with the loved ones during the holidays"? Can't we do that at home any longer? (And by home I don't mean Prahova Valley...)

    Well, Ryan, that is true for Christmas. New Year's Eve however, is the time to go crazy and have fun with your friends. And most of us make a purpose of not staying home.
