Visit Faro and Other Places in Portugal in Style  

Monday, June 8, 2009

Portugal had been one of the most powerful nations in the world during the age of colonialism. It is the main rival of Spain when it comes to territory and spice. If we will remember Fedinand Magallanes, the first person who circum navigate the world is from Portugal but serves Spain during his tenure. Portugal attracts many tourists each year and the best way to travel places is through car. There is faro airport car hire located at Faro Airport in Faro, Portugal. It is a city and municipality in southern Portugal. In recent years the numbers of visitors traveling through Faro Airport has increased as more and more low-cost airlines compete to offer cheap flights to the Algarve. The transport facilities to and from Faro airport with the centre of Faro include taxicabs and a bus line.


In 2006, Portugal was visited by 12.8 million tourists. Tourism is playing an increasingly important role in Portugal's economy contributing with about 5% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Besides regular travel agencies based in Faro, British Airways also has direct and exclusive flights to Faro.

Taking a car for hire through companies like Car Hire Portugal for example will take you to some of the best tourist areas in the country.

The tourist areas are, by order of tourist receipts and earnings, Greater Lisbon (Lisboa), the Algarve, Portuguese Islands (Ilhas Portuguesas: Madeira and Azores), Greater Porto and Northern Portugal (Porto e Norte), Alentejo, and Centro.

2007 was a record year for inbound visitors to Portugal. During the peak of the tourist season, occupancy rates registered levels of almost 100% in the Algarve and in Porto. Porto benefited from staging important world events in the summer, such as the Red Bull Air Race. Domestic tourism continued its significant increase, since the Portuguese still prefer to travel within their borders. Among the inbound countries that contributed the most to the summer’s success were Spain, the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and Ireland.
