Yesterday, a politician on television said ‘We have to show the rest of the world that Greece is still beautiful. We have to show that no one needs to be afraid to spend their vacation here. The media has created the idea that Athens is Bagdad at the moment, which is not true. We need to work on our international image and to make people realize it is not necessary to cancel their flights.’
It’s true, there has nothing changed for tourists. Yes, there were massive demonstrations and at that time it was not the best moment to visit Athens for example, but today everything is fine. And concerning other places in Greece, it’s like nothing has happened. The media needs to show the worst things in order to keep you ‘posted’ but no worries, Greece is still the same… souvlaki, sun, beaches, etc.
