Prior to 1971, The Seychelles had a minimal tourism sector, but with the installation of the airport, the regions tourism was opened up to the world; now 15% of all employment is directly tourism related (and totals 50% of GDP). A hot spot for Europe holiday makers, the Seychelles are becoming increasingly popular for holiday makers in this part of the world. Tourism is focused on the 5 islands of Mahé, Praslin, La Digue, Silhoutte, and Inner Corallines. Although its not a cultural destination as such, visitng the Arulmigu Navasakti Vinayagar Temple, and the Seychelles Natural History Museum is we worth the trip. Although it can be enticing to spend all day on the beach, a change is often required. For nature lovers, visit the Vallee de Mai on Praslin, a national park and world heritage site showcasing flora and fauna, and the worlds largest seed !
