The Thompson Local News

An internally recognized travel company has named Manitoba as one of their top ten regions in the world to visit next year.


Lonely Planet, a travel media company who is well known for publishing travel guidebooks, put Manitoba at number 8 on their list.


The list also includes the Scottish Highlands (#5), Normandy, France (#9) and Northern Peru (#3).


Alan McLaughlin, who works as a consultant for Travel Manitoba on the Northern Tourism Strategy, spoke to Arctic Radio News and said that making the list will mean big things for the entire province in 2019.


He said that one of the best ways for the province to prepare is to think like tourists.


McLaughlin said that doing that will help the province put the best foot forward to give visitors the best experience possible in areas that we anticipate tourists would enjoy.  


The Lonely Plant website feature on Manitoba highlights the history and “multicultural flavour” of Winnipeg, as well as the wildlife visitors can experience in Churchill.


Manitoba is the only Canadian location in their lists for 2019, and the complete lists can be found by clicking here.
