After a two-year hiatus, South Pacific Pocket Guide will resume its pledge to create free online travel guides for most of the South Pacific nations, with the next destination confirmed as the Cook Islands.
South Pacific Pocket Guide, the organisation that has created the largest online travel guides for Fiji, Tonga, Niue and New Zealand, is scheduled for their first formal visit to the Cook Islands in February in order to create their next travel guide, CookIslandsPocketGuide.com.
After a two-year interruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an on-location research visit organised in collaboration with Cook Islands Tourism will take place in February now that the Cook Islands’ borders are open with New Zealand.
“We just want to say thank you to Cook Islands Tourism and especially Noelinee Mateariki and Sandee Cook for helping us keep the project alive despite the COVID-19 pandemic,” says South Pacific Pocket Guide’s Operations Manager, Robin Gayraud. “We understand that tourism is one of the leading industries for many South Pacific nations and we’re excited to aid the comeback of tourism in the
The Cook Islands by creating a free comprehensive online travel guide for the country.”
The travel guide’s creation also comes with free seminars in the Cook Islands where the South Pacific Pocket Guide team will share its online know-how with members of the industry in order to increase online proficiency within the local tourism workforce.
South Pacific Pocket Guide owns and operates the largest online travel guide in New Zealand, as well as the largest travel guides to Fiji, Tonga and Niue and is planning on creating online travel guides for most South Pacific destinations in the next seven years. The project is funded by South Pacific Pocket Guide through a pledge made at the South Pacific Tourism Exchange conference in 2018.
The online travel guide for the Cook Islands is expected to be published in early June 2022 and will be updated and maintained online afterwards.
South Pacific Pocket Guide is currently taking applications for the creation of free online travel guides for other destinations in the South Pacific.
