City tours, excursions and tickets in Mahe Island and surroundings

Moving around in Seychelles - transportation

Most tourists prefer to rent cars. However, such a pleasure is not available on all islands. On some, there is not even a primitive dirt road for a car, and the terrain is so complex that even a powerful jeep cannot cope. On the islands where there are asphalted or unpaved roads, it is quite possible to rent a car. It should be taken into account that movement in the country is left-sided and the roads are extremely narrow and winding and they rise up like a serpentine. You are permitted to develop a speed of up to 40 kilometers per hour within the borders of the city. Outside the precinct of residential areas, you can drive at a speed of about 60 kilometers per hour. Although, the quality of the road surface rarely allows you to accelerate to such a speed. It is worth noting that the islands of Mahe and Praslin are also quite tough about refueling. There are only six petrol stations and they work only from early morning until 11 pm. Therefore, it is worth considering this fact when renting a car. … Open

Economy roadmap of Seychelles

Tourism contributes about seventy percent to the total Gross Domestic Product. This sphere of activity continues to develop actively; new hotels and guesthouses are being built, the transportation infrastructure is improving, and there is quite a good program for attracting tourists. Every year, international studies show that the level of tourist service is getting better in the republic. The agrarian sector to date does not bring more than two percent profits to the economy of the country, although a few decades ago these islands were characterized as agrarian. Agricultural land occupies only about six thousand hectares of land. The local population grows mostly bananas, sweet potatoes, avocado, millet, tea, various vegetables, as well as cinnamon tree. … Open

W Hotel in Changsha is conveniently located in the heart of the city, close to its business and shopping districts.
