Popular US lifestyle magazine, Essence, has named Guyana among the 12 Best places to travel in 2023.
In its latest edition, the Magazine ranked Guyana at #7 on its Best Place to travel list. According to the feature, Guyana is arguably one of the most under-rated travel destinations.
The magazine said Guyana provides unparalleled and near unlimited access to untouched nature and adventure, with about 95% of the country enveloped by lush savannahs, winding rivers, and pristine rainforests with a unique wildlife.
The article also encourages a visit to Georgetown and various restaurants including the Fireside Grill, Oasis Cafe and Nicky’s Fish Shop.
Travelers are also being encouraged by Essence to visit the Kaieteur Falls since it is a must-see. The article also encourages day trips to the botanical gardens and even neighbouring Suriname.
The Ministry of Tourism and the Guyana Tourism Authority have been stepping up their efforts to promote Guyana as a tourist destination.
