Last year, China was the biggest source of tourists to Singapore for the first time ever. Between January and September the 3.2 million visitors alone, spent more than S$3bn ($2.3bn).
Additionally, all across South-East Asia, tourism is booming. The number of visitors increased by 49% between 2010 and 2015, to more than 109 million. Tourism in Asia and the Pacific is thus growing faster than anywhere else in the world.
But in order for the holidaying to continue to grow, infrastructure must improve accordingly. Airports in Manila and Jakarta for example, are crumbling and surrounded by heavy traffic. Plans to increase annual capacity at Bangkok’s airports by tens of millions over the next four years are already underway, and airports in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur are scheduled to be upgraded in the near future, too.
