AMBASSADORS RECOMMEND WHICH MOVIE BEST REPRESENTS THEIR COUNTRY

-
Exodus Movie PosterBetween September 2017 and January 2018, Travelbird, the all-in-one travel shop, managed to contact over 100 different ambassadors from all around the world in order to ask them a series of travel-related questions. Amongst the questions they asked were: (1) If a person is planning to visit your country for 48 hours, where should they go? What should they see? And what should they eat? (2) Is there a common cliche about people in your country which you believe is misrepresentative or untrue? And (3) Which movie best represents your country?

Please Note: This questionnaire was specially designed so these ambassadors could give the casual reader an overall impression of the country they represent, and most probably reflects their own tastes more than a national standard. That said, however, they are in a unique position to promote their country and impart expert advice on everything it has on offer. Essentially these results are part of a larger study which features travel recommendations and cultural insights from embassies across the globe.

Now if you want to see the full result of this survey please click here for more details. Or alternatively, check out the following list to have a look at the answers each ambassador gave for question three: Which movie best represents your country? Please enjoy.
