FRIENDLIEST HOLIDAY DESTINATION: SMILES ALL ROUND FOR PLETT!!!
Want to be sure of a smile this summer? Best you head for the Garden Route, and the friendliest town in South Africa (www.plettenbergbay.com).

That's according to kulula.com, whose Friendliest Destinations survey says that the warmest holiday welcome in SA is to be found in Plettenberg Bay. Via its kulula Holidays Site, kulula.com surveyed over 1500 people from across the country. Fans were asked to vote for their favorite friendliest holiday destination from a list of 40 destinations across South Africa.

The researchers used the highly scientific "Smile/Scowl" Ratio Method to gather results by walking along the busy main road of each destination and noting spontaneous and returned smiles of passersby. Five points were awarded to the destination when locals spontaneously smiled; two points were awarded when our researchers smiled and received return stunners.

"No-one wants to holiday with a bunch of sad sacks, so we're helping South Africans pick the happiest destinations to visit in the summer. In our business we've learned that friendly staff is critical to keep people coming back - it's exactly the same for summer holiday destinations," says kulula.com Marketing Manager, Nadine Damen.
