“September is Tourism Month in South Africa, and on 27 September, we also celebrate World Tourism Day. The focus is on domestic tourism, of which one of the most significant advantages is that it promotes local travel. Domestic tourism presents powerful business opportunities for destinations such as Paarl- Wellington. The Municipality’s Economic Development and Tourism division promotes leisure tourism through day trips in Paarl, Wellington, and surrounds. Our scenic region invites locals to explore their own backyard.”
