Tourism recommendations falling

A new survey by Tourism New Zealand suggests visitors to our country still enjoy their trips but are less enthusiastic about recommending New Zealand to others.
“Over the last four years, those very likely to recommend a visit to New Zealand to friends and family has slowly fallen from a very high rating of 84 percent to 79 percent,” Tourism NZ’s Chris Roberts told Firstline this morning.
Mr Roberts cites the cost to travel around New Zealand as one possible cause for the fall.
“On the whole people say that they’re having a very good experience… There’s no issue with the value that we’re providing… but the ratings that tend to be the lowest are the price of accommodation, the price of food and beverage, the price of activities.”
Mr Roberts says tourism providers must think about whether or not they are providing value for money to travellers.

I am wondering if it because people are terrified of those horrible little hobbits being touted for being about the place

New Zealand or Slovenia, Croatia, Romania etc. Think people are starting to realise that many parts of Eastern Europe are much more affordable and have just as good (if not better) scenery as well as historic cities. New Zealand's urban environment (ugly buildings, traffic etc) leaves a lot to be desired for many people!
