“WHAT’S ON!”: the new English-language tourist magazine
“The New Caledonia Weekly” has changed its format in 2017 and become “WHAT’S ON!”. From its original newspaper style, it has now become a more practical, pocket-sized English-language magazine, fully linked to the New Caledonia Tourism website: www.newcaledonia.travel. All the essential information on events, maps and a selection of tourist sights throughout New Caledonia are contained within its pages.
With the objective of providing information and guidance to English-speaking tourists and cruise ship passengers on the events and activities happening in the South Province, New Caledonia Tourism (NCTPS) has supported “The New Caledonia Weekly” newspaper, produced by the “On en parle!” agency, since it was first published in May 2008.
Now in a new, compact format (12 x 21 cm) and called WHAT’S ON !, this useful, complimentary monthly magazine and its contents can be used further afield, throughout New Caledonia. Visitors to the destination now have a new source of information in English to enhance their stay when exploring the country’s five geo-touristic regions: Nouméa, the Islands, the West Coast, the East Coast and the Great South.
The contents have been divided into five sections, allowing tourists ease of access to the information :
- Hot Picks : the main, not-to-be-missed events each month.
- Agenda : the monthly calendar of events in New Caledonian.
- Essential : The must-see tourist sites.
- Maps : maps of New Caledonia, Nouméa city centre and its beaches.
- Useful tips : practical advice to get around the destination.
All the events detailed in the magazine can also be viewed on the www.nouvellecaledonie.travel website, giving both tourists and locals alike access to a single, reliable and up to date calendar of events in French and English.
The first issue of the magazine will be available from 16 February at more than 130 tourist sites (Museums, hotels, bars, etc.), transport companies (Aircalin and Air Calédonie planes and the Betico ferry), tourist offices and online through the NCTPS website.
