For those that did not know, Oprah is a name known around the world. People love to watch her, and they like to go where she goes. Nothing has proven this more than the rush of people who have now been visiting Australia.
According to reports, just a week after Oprah’s visit to Australia hit American TVs, the number of people traveling to Australia increased. However, this increase in tourism did not die down as quickly as what some figured it would. Now, many weeks past Oprah’s visit to Australia, there is still an increase in the number of Americans heading to Australia.
Expedia went on to back up these facts. In fact, Expedia said that, during the week in which Oprah’s stay in Australia was broadcast, the number of people interested in Australian vacations increased by 163 percent.
Now just like everyone else, Expedia assumed that these numbers would start to drop back down again. However, weeks later, the number of people that are looking to travel to Australia is still on the rise. Overall, experts in Australia say that this is a good thing. With all of the problems that Australia has had to deal with, this little extra boost is what the country needs.
It is very possible that other countries are now going to want Oprah to come visit them. If one woman can boost a country’s tourism, those countries are going to do whatever they can to get her inside their boarders. However, getting Oprah to visit may not be as easy as what some people would think. After all, Oprah is one of the richest women in the world. What do people offer to the woman that has it all?
