List of Tourism Slogans of Countries around the World

In every marketing or advertising campaign, a catching and a memorable slogan plays a vital role to achieving success. With a simple and short phrase, it can attract potential consumers. This is also true in the tourism business and industry. That is why countries, states and cities around the world are investing efforts and money to come up with the best slogan that can attract the most number of tourists and visitors to their place. Of course more tourists mean more revenue for the economy. Just like the famous slogans and taglines of the leading companies and brands in the world, I got curious and interested to know the slogans used by different countries. My inquisitiveness brought me into researching over the Internet and visiting the various official tourism websites of these countries. Consequently, I have compiled a list of tourism slogans of some countries in the world. Enjoy, have fun, and tell me which among them is the simplest, catchiest and most inviting.

    I come from the advertising industry as well and I personally like Egypt. Where It All Begins because it simply puts one in the position to say, ‘Oo nga naman.’ (It makes sense. or Yup. That’s true.) It validates what the place is. No question.

    I personally don’t fancy the Philippines’ current tagline because it can easily be countered by a ‘Of course not.’ or ‘I’ll be the judge of that.’ Plus, the campaign is a pandora’s box of sorts. It became a meme more on the negative side wherein double meanings err to the negative side. One example was a visual showing the tourist bus which got hijacked and became international news and was ridiculed for its poor handling which resulted in the deaths of the tourists. It came with the headline ‘Tourism. It’s More Fun In The Philippines.’

    Is it?

      I agree on what you share Dennis. Actually a good marketing campaign should have the 4Ps of marketing. We can just rely on the promotion, without making our products aligned to what we are advertising. Thanks for sharing your insight.
