Wayne Price from Brisbane, Australia has visited the Cook Islands numerous times, twenty one times in fact, winning the online International Visitors Survey award.

On Monday December 3, his latest visit was made extra special as he received a voucher from Bergman and Sons and Cook Islands Tourism to the value of $1500.

Price says his frequent visits are due to the friendly people, the beautiful environment and the general ease of island life.

He also identified people of the Cook Islands, such as Kia Orana Ambassador, Aunty Nane as another reason for his exceptional experiences and consequent visits.

The Cook Islands tourism survey is sent electronically to all visitors to the Cook Islands and the winner is drawn once a year.

The survey focuses on the characteristics, expectations and expenditure patterns of visitors to the Cook Islands.

This information enables effective planning and development of the tourism industry and highlights its crucial role within the broader Cook Island economy.

As an added incentive to fill out the survey, all participants in the online survey go into the draw to win the prize.

Cook Islands Tourism Corporation congratulates Wayne Price on his 21st visit to the Cook Islands and for being chosen as the recipient of the online survey prize.
