Middle East tourists fall by 4% in first 4 months of 2014

: Sunday, August 03 - 2014 @ 02:11

Continuing unrest in the Middle East kept tourism numbers dropped in the first four months of 2014, reported The United Nation’s World Tourism Organization. Though demand for international tourism remained strong as it grew by 5%, arrivals in the Middle East dropped by about 4%, despite Saudi Arabia being named as one of fastest growing source markets, MENAFN has reported. The Middle East was the only region in the world to post a decline in visitor numbers from January to April compared to the same period last year although the UNWTO said the 4% figure “should be taken with caution as it is based on limited available data for the region.”
