12.2.08 eTurboNews “ Geared Towards Responsible Travelers” Geared Towards Responsible Travelers is a new web portal that is opening the door to independent travelers wishing to book services with local tour operators and accommodations.

“The portal is an important addition to our country’s tourism promotion channels,” said the Solomon Islands Minister for Tourism, Mr. Seth Gukuna. “It will not only enhance Solomon Islands appeal, but also enable business to be conducted in this important sector.”

The name “Solomon” was a natural choice to the owners, as “hotels” is a significant key word in Web searches and .travel reflects the nature of the site. By using its .travel name, SolomonIslands-Hotels expects to see an increase in independent travelers due to the additional exposure and well-presented information. They are also expecting a broad spectrum of visitors. The Solomon Islands has a variety of activities and special interests that will attract travelers from backpackers to business travelers.
