The aftermath of the recession, rise of unemployment and surge in fuel prices has hit the travel industry hard. The once strong desire for families to spend savings on a yearly packaged holiday on the Continent and beyond has been slashed, as they fork out money on unforeseen bills. This book is designed to showcase and expose people to the wide variety of travel options and tourist attractions still available on The Isle of Man. Whether it is the wonderful countryside, golf courses, hotels, medieval castles, museums, or maritime charms, the Isle of Man offers options for people within any sort of budgetary limit. While many people know of the world championship TT motorbike races held on the island every year, there are much more widespread and diverse travel options here. These “hidden gems” should be highlighted and exposed, and that’s what these travel articles showcase.
