Increased tourism despite fears of terror

Increased tourism despite fears of terror
According to the United Nations (UN), 1,18 billion holiday trips abroad were conducted last year. This is an increase of 4.4 percent from the previous year, despite increased fears of terror.

The UN had already predicted an increase of 3.4 percent following an increase of 4.7 percent the year before.

It is the sixth consecutive year that tourism is increasing worldwide, following a decline of 4 percent in 2009 when the world economy was hit by a crisis and the fear of swine flu caused many to stay home.

Although some countries experienced a decrease in tourism due to terror.

Last year especially tourism in Tunisia was hit hard. Tunisa experienced a decline in tourism as a result of 59 tourists being killed in two terrorist attacks against respectively the Bardo Museum in Tunis, and a seaside hotel in the resort town of Sousse.
