Quarterly Tourism Monitor 4Q2017 is now available


 
The Quarterly Tourism Monitor (QTM)  provides a timely quantitative view of inbound travel by origin markets for all major destinations in Asia Pacific by quarter for the calendar year 2017.

Key highlights of QTM 4Q2017:
  • International visitor arrivals (IVAs) to the 30 Asia Pacific destinations that have released fourth quarter 2017 data show a combined inbound total of 94.8 million with a growth rate of 8.5 percent over the same period last year
  • In Northeast Asia, due to a political situation, Korea (ROK) witnessed a significant decline of Chinese arrivals by over 40 percent, leading to a decrease in the total visitor arrival count of 20 percent in this period. Japan, on the other hand, continued to see solid arrivals growth from China (+31.4%) during 4Q2017
  • In South Asia, after having recovered from the earthquake in 2015, Nepal reported the strongest growth of 23.7 percent for the quarter, driven largely by a 22.3 percent increase in visitor arrivals from India
