indexGuam concluded with a record-breaking 1.56 million travelers, majority of them in a fiscal year to date, as per the Guam Visitors Bureau. Fiscal 2017 witnessed a 3.2 percent increase in visitors in comparison to the previous fiscal year, which had also created the record.


On Tuesday, Gov. Eddie Calvo and Lt. Gov. Ray Tenorio published news release that appreciated the tourism agency for its work and effort in the hospitality and service industry.


In spite of the raise in visitors, Japanese visitors have decreased quite a lot. The tourism agency has mentioned about the decrease in flights along with seating capacity and the raising political stress between the U.S. and North Korea as factors in the decline.
