Algarve Tourism Board (RTA) has launched an online video campaign to encourage Portuguese nationals to ‘stay home’ as coronavirus continues to spread, and ‘come back later,’ after the crisis, to enjoy the region.
The voice over on the video being promoted on social media urges people to ‘postpone your holidays, but not your heart,’ adding that ‘the Algarve will always be here.’
Há momentos na vida em que desejamos estar juntos. E se agora estamos separados, é apenas para depois voltarmos com ainda mais saudade. Adia as férias, mas não o coração.Afinal, haverá sempre Algarve. E é sempre tempo de voltarmos a estar juntos, aqui neste destino que será sempre teu também. Até breve,Algarve.❤️ #ficaemcasa #naocancelesadia
