  • Talking About Tourism

    Tourism has taken over most parts of the world with people jetting all over the place to every beautiful haven spot that there is available to get to from the nearest airport. It is one of the most popular recreational things that people currently do each year. Some people holiday several times a year whereas others will go just once a year or even less. Tourism is a big booming industry that supplies local industries with billions of dollars to keep the communities and sometimes whole countries or Islands alive. Some communities are solely reliant on the tourism industry and have season where they are busy with tourists and during the off peak season they are very quite with most places closed down. The business owners must make as much money as possible during the season so that they can survive the off peak times as there will be little or no money coming in to feed their families. If some thing happened to the tourism industry millions of people would become employed and the countries and place that were of such life and beauty would become closed down and desolate as the place went into a recession.

    The current global money crisis caused a lot of countries whose survival weighs heavily on tourism panicked as they thought that the tourism would slow down creating even more problems world wide. But it turned out that at the beginning of the year the same amount of people visited the tourism spots as they did the previous year. When it came to the middle of the year the trend did begin to fall causing a lot of people to worry.  The top ten countries visited are:

    1. France, Europe with a total of eighty million visitors in 2007 and only seventy nine million in 2008.

    2. Spain, Europe with a total of fifty nine million visitors in 2007 and only fifty eight million in2008.

    3. USA with a total of fifty six million visitors in 2007 and only fifty one million in 2008.

    4. China, Asia with a total of fifty four million visitors in 2007 and only forty nine million in 2008.

    5. Italy, Europe with a total of forty three million visitors in 2007 and only forty one million in 2008.

    6. UK, Europe with a total of thirty million visitors in 2007 and 2008 remained the same.

    7. Germany, Europe with a total of twenty four million visitors in 2007 and only twenty three million in 2008.

    8. Ukraine, Europe with a total of twenty three million visitors in 2007 and only eighteen million in 2008.

    9. Turkey, Europe with a total of twenty one million visitors in 2007 and only eighteen million in 2008.

    10. Mexico, North America with a total of twenty one million visitors in 2007 and only seventeen million in 2008.

    As you can see the trend for tourism has dropped dramatically. It is believed though that as soon as the worlds economy picks up that the tourism figure will also climb.
