Sao Tome and Principe to have tourist information website

Sao Tome and Principe will have a tourist information website that will be launched by the end of the month, said the manager of “Welcome to”, a project that aims to develop a digital platform for tourist information about the Portuguese-speaking countries.

“We started in Angola ( ‘Welcome to Angola’), four years ago, as the country was in a period of great economic growth and various components allowed to start there,” Paulo Costa told Portuguese news agency Lusa.

Now it is Sao Tome and Principe’s turn and in the meantime contacts have been made to launch websites in Mozambique, scheduled for early 2017, and Cabo Verde (Cape Verde), followed later the other Portuguese-speaking countries.

Costa said the team in Sao Tome and Principe is collecting all sorts of information and photos, sending them on to the “Welcome to” content management team, which is based in Lisbon and frequently updates the website, as it already does for Angola.

“We’re going to map Sao Tome and also the island of Principe, identifying the places of tourist interest to visit, including the country’s cultural and historical heritage,” he said.

Costa said the website will contain information on all tourist services and other attractions on the two islands, such as hotels, restaurants, car hire and supermarkets, which may be of interest to those who wish to visit Sao Tome and Principe. (macauhub/PT/ST)
