Czechs On Holiday. With Czech Celebrities

In Czechs, Travel on April 24, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka

This has to be the stupidest tourism-related offer I have seen in years.

Czechs who go on holidays to Croatia with the CKVT travel agency can enjoy the company of Czech actors, stand-up comedians, singers, etc. The noted personalities get their “holiday” more or less for free in exchange for their performance. The travel agency is advertising the performances on its website to attract clients…

I thought it was normal to go on holidays abroad to enjoy everything that is LOCAL and the only thing that this holiday shall have in common with Czech culture is a book in Czech that one reads on the beach.

But NOPE, there obviously are Czech yokels whose idea of cultural experience is visiting an hour-long performance of a Czech actor in a foreign country – and who will buy the stay BECAUSE of it.

It is like going to Aruba BECAUSE you can go to a Barry Manilow concert there…

Pathetic, isn’t it?
