Winning tweets and photos chosen for tourism day

UNWTO announced winners for World Tourism Day due on September 27

Five photos and five “tweets” that best reflect the theme “Tourism – Linking Cultures” have been selected from hundreds of entries submitted to the UN World Tourism Organisation’s 2011 World Tourism Day competitions. World Tourism Day comes around again on September 27. The winning photos, featuring Korean women celebrating India’s Holi festival and a young tourist backstage at the Chinese Opera Theatre, alongside a selection of finalists, will be displayed as part of an exhibition in Aswan, Egypt, the host of the official World Tourism Day celebrations. The tweets will appear on all WTD promotional materials.
Tourism thinkers and sector leaders will meet in Aswan on Tuesday to debate tourism’s role in linking cultures and improving dialogue, mutual understanding and respect.
