This report from PATA forecasts growth in the number of Europeans travelling to Asia, and we expect a significant segment of these people will come here to take advantage of the area’s competitive rates on holidays.
(Vocus/PRWEB) 31 March 2011
Online travel experts dealchecker.co.uk are forecasting a significant surge in the number of Europeans travelling to Asia for holidays. This statement is based upon a recent announcement by the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) which predicted that in 2013 more than 44 million European visitors will arrive in the Asia-Pacific region. Alex Saint, CEO for dealchecker.co.uk, comments: “This report from PATA forecasts growth in the number of Europeans travelling to Asia, and we expect a significant segment of these people will come here to take advantage of the area’s competitive rates on holidays.”
PATA is responsible for the development of travel and tourism in the Asia Pacific region. They pegged European arrivals in Asia Pacific destinations at 34.5 million in 2009, a number which will rise to 44 million in 2013. In regards to the UK, the association predicted that 2013 would see a staggering 11.81 million Brits arrive in the area.
Saint comments on these findings: “We have already begun to observe this trend as many
Brits are choosing to head to Thailand, Singapore and Sri Lanka for beach holidays. Our customers always come back thrilled with the area as it offers lovely weather, great hotels and bargain prices.”
Saint concludes that this trend will change the way British people plan their holidays. He states: “In the past Brits travelled to a selection of excellent destinations nearby; in the future these great spots will still be popular, yet the horizons will expand and many will choose to venture far afield to Asia to relax, indulge and explore a whole new continent. Indeed, PATA’s prediction that over 11 million Brits will travel to Asia is very significant news as it indicates that people will take every opportunity to get abroad and have an amazing time in a diverse range of destinations.”
