Tourism market trend
Asia experienced a tourism boom in recent years. According to UNWTO, the market welcomed 362 million international arrivals in 2019, representing 25% of the world's total. The share followed an upward trend from 16% in 2000 and 21% in 2010.
Before the pandemic Southeast Asia received a surge of international visitors, with an annual growth of 8% in 2019. Destinations like Thailand and Vietnam achieved record numbers thanks to tourism-oriented visa policies and enhancement of air connectivity. In contrast, East Asia maintained a moderate growth, 1% in 2019, led by Japan and China.
Being the first region affected by the Covid-19, most countries in Asia imposed border restrictions and temporarily suspended international travel. While this caused a decline in the number of visitors and impacted the tourism, the quick action contributed to effectively contain the spread.
With the epidemic under control and mass vaccination in progress, measures to support the recovery of tourism in Asia are already in place and many destinations have reopened to vaccinated travellers by the end of 2021.
