Tourism in this country has been far better than its economic growth. An improvisation in its marketing campaign last year has apparently given this country a massive boost in tourism. So has the ‘Game of Thrones effect’. Shooting of this extremely popular serial was done for a few seasons in Iceland, hence, the boom in the number of visitors.
A decline in the value of the Japanese Yen, eased rules for visas, improved access to airports and expansion of duty-free shopping. All of these aforementioned factors in Japan have helped the country in attracting a record number of tourists who visit this country for a holiday.
Mexico has taken advantage of its weak exchange rate (in the face of a strong U.S. dollar), to strengthen and boost its tourism sector. The Mexican government has also allowed tourists with a valid U.S. visa to travel to Mexico which has encouraged an increasing number of travellers to visit Mexico during their journey to the U.S.
New Zealand has always attracted numerous tourists every year. According to the ministry of business, innovation and development-New Zealand, the highest number of tourists to this country are from Australia followed closely by China. Call this the ‘Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings’ magic or the warm hospitality of the Kiwi’s or maybe the visual delight the country offers, whatever the reason, the contribution of tourism in New Zealand’s GDP is $12.9 billion which is roughly 5.6% of the country’s total GDP.
