Record Tourism to Israel continues

13 August, 201313 August, 2013 0 comments Tourism Tourism

Israel has never been a more popular tourist destination. According to the latest data released by country's central bureau of statistics, Israel reached an all-time record for tourist entries in July 2013: 246,000 tourists stayed overnight in the country, approximately 2% more than last year, and 4% more than in 2011.Interest in cruise ship visitors increased as well fueled by the additional cruise ships visiting the region.

 

Since the start of the year ver 2 million visitors arrived in Israel - signalling another record year for tourism to Israel. The improving economic condition in the US, open skies agreement, and the elimination of visa requirements from India, Russia, China and the Ukraine are expected to continue to positively impact Israel's tourism industry, 1% more than the same period in 2012, 8% more than 2011 and 6% more than 2010. Should the current trend continue, Travelujah estimates that 3.6 million tourists will visit Israel in 2013.
