Singapore draws increased number of tourists from India

Published on : Friday, February 24, 2017

SingaporeSingapore has started luring an increased number of tourists from India, especially in the period between January and September 2016. During that point of time, India had been the fourth largest source market of Singapore in terms of tourist arrivals, as per a press release.

 

This is partly because of increased number of arrivals from tier-1 and tier-II cities from the country.

 

This, however is on account of the intense marketing campaign of the Singapore Tourism Board (STB). China is actually the biggest contributor to the tourist arrivals to Singapore and this is followed closely by Indonesia.

 

The largest decrease in tourist arrivals had been recorded by countries including Japan, South Korea, Australia, Malaysia and Hong Kong.

 

Despite the fluctuations, the visitor arrivals to Singapore had shot up by 7.7% to 1.6 crore and tourism receipts had risen by 13.9% to 1.6 lakh crore that amounts to $24.8 billion in the year 2016.
