Travel Small on Small Country Sunday


Black Friday is just around the corner once more and all of the major brands and stores are getting ready for all of the crazy discounts to receive tons and tons of visitors. This is a day when a lot of people go out and shop for whatever they need or want in hopes of saving a bit of money while buying quality stuff.

It started as a US thing but the trend has become incredibly popular around the world in the last couple of years and now it is done in many countries around the world. The internet has also allowed customers from different countries to be able to enjoy the discounts.

However, during this time of the year, some of the smallest businesses struggle a bit to catch buyer’s attention. That is because most can’t afford to offer the large discounts that the big companies do.

The same thing happens to small and not so well known countries. Most of the time they can’t compete with the more popular destinations such as Rome which is a place that almost everyone knows about and wants to visit eventually.

That is how the tourism board of Belize came up with a new fun idea that was inspired on Black Friday. They decided to call it Small Country Sunday. This will be a day to honor small nations and encourage travelers to book their adventure somewhere new.The idea is to give exposure to small countries and encourage travelers to book small and experience a unique and memorable vacation. The date chosen for this new way of celebrating less known destinations is November 29.

Aside from doing as much promotion as they can the Belizean tourism board is encouraging all travelers to help them spread the word on all of their social media platforms. The idea is to share why they want to travel small in 2016 using #SmallCountrySunday. In exchange for that help a traveler or hashtagger will win a trip for two to visit this tiny and tropical country.

After visiting Belize I can say that it is a great prize, especially because all you have to do to enter is to share a hashtag on social media. This is a tiny country in northern Central America with a Caribbean coast, many small islands with untamed beaches, lush jungles, ancient ruins and exotic wildlife. 

How to enter: 

1. The Belize Tourism Board on Twitter, Instagram and/or Facebook

2. Show or tell why you want to travel small in 2016 using the hashtag #SmallCountrySunday. 
That’s it! You entered to win one of the two trips.

Two winners will be randomly selected at 7 p.m. CST on Sunday, November 29. To see more information on the rules click here for official rules. If you want more details the Belize Tourism Board has also created a video for Small Country Sunday, which explains the need for this holiday.

Finally I leave you with the words of Karen Bevans, Director of Tourism at the Belize Tourism Board: “Small Country Sunday is a movement to connect travelers to countries like Belize, who struggle to compete with the big budgets and infrastructure that many larger countries have. This program will directly impact the livelihood of many small business owners and families who rely on tourism.”

What do you think about this new movement to bring attention to not so popular countries and destinations? Do you think that reading about it motivated you to travel small?
