Tourist Levels Soared in February 2010

February 2010 was the third month running that visitor levels to Singapore have increased. Ever since the mini revival of the world economy as a whole in late 2009, the Singapore has enjoyed soaring tourist numbers. A large proportion of tourist hailed from China, Malaysia and Taiwan in February. 13 of the top 15 markets for tourists to Singapore also registered positive growth levels.

A possible reason for the soaring February numbers could be due to the Chinese New Year Holiday period. In addition, tourism in Singapore received a boost from the opening of the Integrated Resort, Resorts World Sentosa. Travel agents and agencies have been buoyed by this news, stating that this trend could well carry on in the next six months, with the opening of the Marina Bay Sands and the Youth Olympic Games
