Jakarta

The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has released data on the most popular countries for world tourists during 2021. Is Indonesia on the list?

The tourism industry has been battered by the Covid-19 pandemic. State gates are closed, flights are stopped, social distancing rules are implemented to suppress the spread of Covid-19 while at the same time stopping traveler’s travel activities from one country to another.

Now after two dim years, tourism is starting to show its passion. All countries in the world began to record an increase in the number of foreign tourist arrivals.

Quoted from US News, according to a June analysis from UNWTO, the UN agency focused on tourism, the number of foreign tourist arrivals increased by almost 200 percent in the first quarter of 2022.

Although some statistics are far below 2019 levels, UNWTO is optimistic that international tourism will gradually increase this year.

Nearly half of the experts surveyed by the organization expect international tourism to return to pre-pandemic levels by 2023. The rest expect tourism to recover much later, in 2024 or later.

UNWTO compiled several metrics related to tourism arrivals by country, including international tourist arrivals, based on the most recent data from 2021.
