“To have our Stellenbosch recognised as one of the top 100 destinations globally is the most heart-warming moment for our communities, stakeholders, local businesses and travel and tourism sectors,” says Jeanneret Momberg, CEO of Visit Stellenbosch.
“We are overjoyed that we have ranked in the top 25 as well. Visitors fall in love with Stellenbosch and can’t stop talking about when they can come back!”
Tourism Sentiment Index (TSI), a travel data intelligence solution created by destination marketing agency Destination Think, analysed over 1.6 billion online conversations and articles about 21,330 global destinations to compile the list.
“As Visit Stellenbosch, we have worked hard to showcase our town’s wealth of offerings – from our renowned wining and dining to splendid scenery, outdoor pursuits and creativity, living history and culture,” says Momberg.
“We are so excited that this accolade coincides with the launch of our #FreeToBe in Stellenbosch campaign. We want to remind travellers in the northern hemisphere, a significant source market for us, that while they are cooped up in their apartments in the cold and dark winter, the sun is shining in Stellenbosch.
Come visit Stellenbosch and enjoy the freedom of our outdoors, desirable lifestyle overflowing with great wine and fabulous food, beauty and creativity, and spectacular natural surroundings.”
“We invite all visitors from far and wide to come and discover why thousands of travellers love Stellenbosch. You are #FreeToBe in our warm-hearted town and won’t be disappointed!” concludes Momberg.
