More Greeks to cancel or cut vacations

More than twice as many Greeks (30 percent of the total number of respondents) say they will take shorter or less expensive vacations this year compared with last, while the proportion of those who will not be holidaying at all is increasing, according to a survey by Kapa Research. The survey was presented at the international ’14th Tourism Panorama’ at the Expo Athens exhibition center in Anthousa, eastern Attica. The Cyclades, including the islands of Naxos (photo, foreground) and Paros (background), are the top choice for Greek holidaymakers, the survey found. Some 64 percent of respondents estimate there will be a decline in tourism this year but that it will not be as high as forecast. The exhibition will remain open until Sunday.
