Tourism in Paris makes for a robust recovery

Published on : Tuesday, April 18, 2017

parisFollowing terrorist attacks in 2015, tourism in Paris went down considerably. However, as per new national data, tourism has now recovered strongly in France, including the capital. The French National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies said visitor numbers at the end of last year were similar to those from the end of 2014. This is good news for France and is indicative that it would maintain its status as the world’s most visited country.

 
Both foreign and domestic tourists seem to have accepted the idea that they may have to live with some risk, and that a city like Paris will never be completely safe and out of danger. Restaurateurs, hotel owners and museum officials confirmed the growth in visitors in the recent months and expressed hope that the trend would continue this year.

 
In January this year, number of people checking into Paris hotels reached a 10-year high of just over 1.5 million. The euro is cheaper against the United States dollar than before the attacks, which makes it more attractive for Americans to travel to the euro zone. And the Chinese tourism market continued to grow last year, rising 4.3% from 2015. Tourist numbers from Japan and other European countries, however, have to grow at same rates as those from the US and China.
