Description

The Quarterly Tourism Monitor (QTM) provides an authoritative view of inbound travel, by origin markets, for all major destinations in the Asia Pacific region.

Key highlights of QTM 2Q2017

  • International visitor arrivals (IVAs) to the 27 Asia Pacific destinations that have released second quarter 2017 data show a combined inbound total of 83.7 million with a growth rate of 6.9 percent over the same period last year
  • Japan is leading the pack in Northeast Asia with year-on-year growth of 21.1 percent. Korea (ROK) saw a significant decline in this period, reporting a 32.6 percent decrease that was driven mainly by falling visitor arrivals from China (-65.7%)
  • South Asia reported a year-on-year growth of 18.2 percent, driven mainly by a gain of IVAs to India (+22.4%)
  • In Southeast Asia, Vietnam outperformed other regional peers in terms of percentage growth. The destination witnessed a significant rise of arrivals from its largest key source market, Northeast Asia, of 45.3 percent
  • Northern Marianas dominated the Pacific region with a solid growth of 41 percent for the quarter, boosted by strong traffic from Northeast Asia (+42.7%)
  • Within Asia and the Pacific, Thailand has remained top of the chart with 1.1 million visitor arrivals from Europe, reporting 8.6 percent increase during 2Q2017. Indonesia also experienced a solid growth of 19.4 percent from the European market, making it the strongest destination in percentage growth terms
