Local tourists flock to Agadir more than foreigners

Published on : Saturday, October 19, 2019

 Among the tourists who visited Agadir, capital of the Souss region in southern Morocco, domestic tourists topped the list.

 

The flow of domestic tourists to the city increased during the month of August, media reported.

 

The Regional Council of Tourism in Agadir said that Moroccans spent 324,729 tourist nights, an increase of 10.27 per cent compared to the same period last year.

 

The regional tourism office said that French tourists came second, with 124,499 nights against 123,926 during the same period last year. Arrivals of French tourists saw an increase of 0.46 per cent.

 

British tourists came third with 74.499 nights and an increase of 7.6 per cent compared to last year.

 

Statistics from Morocco’s Tourism Observatory Office said earlier this month that French tourists remain the main market for Morocco’s tourism.

 

The data added that Morocco recorded 1.84 million arrivals of French tourists, registering a growth of 14% compared to 2017.

 

French tourists spent MAD 9.8 billion in Morocco by the end of 2017, representing an increase of 8.89% compared to the same period in 2016.

 

The average spending per person per night has increased from MAD 751 in 2016 to MAD 813 in 2017.
