A study was commissioned by the state agency Turismo de Portugal to determine the percentage of different categories of tourists coming to rest in Portugal. Among the respondents were tourists from the UK, Ireland, Spain, Germany, France, Holland and Brazil.

Estimates showed that 54% of the total number of foreign guests in Portugal are young couples. At the same time, 47% of their number come with their friends. It is these 47% of vacationers who choose more expensive hotel rooms to stay in order to relax in comfortable conditions.

How do foreign youth relax in Portugal
In addition to passive beach holidays in Portugal, approximately half of young couples follow a rich excursion program around cities and ancient monuments. It is of great importance for them to visit famous sights, as well as search for interesting cultural and historical sites that have not yet gained wide popularity and therefore are far from well-trodden tourist routes.

Reviews about holidays in Portugal
Active youth seeks to share their impressions about holidays in Portugal, including leaving reviews in thematic blogs and Internet portals. As the analysis shows, most of the youth reviews about holidays in Portugal are positive.

After analyzing the answers of all respondents during the study, it was found that for almost 95% of them, holidays in Portugal not only corresponded, but also exceeded their expectations. Interestingly, similar results were obtained as a result of two previous surveys. In general, over the past few years, more than 90% of those who come to rest in Portugal are satisfied.

More than half of all respondents, speaking about holidays in different cities of Portugal, chose the wording “beyond praise”. Safety, hotels and food were “excellent” rated by more than 90% of foreign tourists from among the respondents. For all the foreigners who first visited Portugal, architectural monuments, natural landscapes, and national cuisine became the main positive discoveries.
