World Tourism Barometer: January 2023

International tourism recovers 63% of pre-pandemic levels in 2022

unwto tourism gdp

According to new data from UNWTO , more than 900 million tourists traveled internationally in 2022 – double the number recorded in 2021.

Tourism recovery is foreseen to continue throughout 2023 even as the sector faces economic, health and geopolitical challenges. The recent lifting of COVID-19 related travel restrictions in China, the world’s largest outbound market in 2019, is a significant step for the recovery of the tourism sector in Asia, the Pacific, and worldwide. 

All regions enjoyed significant increases in 2022 over the previous year, and are well on their way to seeing pre-pandemic tourist arrivals.

The resumption of travel from China is likely to benefit Asian destinations in particular. However, the choice of destinations will be shaped by the availability and cost of air travel, visa regulations, and processes, as well as COVID-19-related restrictions. Current travel restrictions can be found in the UNWTO/IATA Destination Tracker .

Based on UNWTO’s scenarios for 2023, international tourist arrivals could reach 80% to 95% of pre-pandemic levels this year, with Europe and the Middle East expected to reach those levels. However, important risks remain ahead, especially economic and geopolitical.

According to the latest survey of the Panel of Experts, the challenging economic environment including high inflation and interest rates, the spike in oil and food prices, as well as the fears of a global recession, continues to be the main factor weighing on the recovery of tourism.

Why conduct research?

From the outset, our Members realised that hard economic facts were needed to help governments and policymakers truly understand the potential of Travel & Tourism. Measuring the size and growth of Travel & Tourism and its contribution to society, therefore, plays a vital part in underpinning WTTC’s work.

What research does WTTC carry out?

Each year, WTTC and Oxford Economics produce reports covering the economic contribution of our sector in 185 countries, for 26 economic and geographic regions, and for more than 70 cities. We also benchmark Travel & Tourism against other economic sectors and analyse the impact of government policies affecting the sector such as jobs and visa facilitation.

10 countries with the best tourism economies—according to a 2024 report.

Thanks in part to its national parks, universities and major metros, the United States boasts the strongest travel and tourism economy in the world right now, according to a newly released report from the World Economic Forum.

Overall, however, European countries dominate the top 10 with six of them making the cut—including France, which will be an especially popular destination this summer as Paris hosts the 2024 Summer Olympics .

The World Economic Forum’s Travel & Tourism Development Index (TTDI) takes into account a number of factors across several categories for its rankings.

The report’s metrics focus on countries’ tourism sectors—including factors like airports, on-the-ground transportation and ports, natural and cultural resources, safety and security, price competitiveness and destinations’ openness to tourism.

“The index measures the set of factors and policies that enable the sustainable and resilient development of the [travel and tourism] sector, which in turn contributes to the development of a country,” the report says.

A category that helped the United States achieve the top rank include “non-leisure resources,” which the U.S. ranked first for and is defined as having a presence of leading universities, global cities and major corporations.

With 429 national parks sites and more than 12,000 miles of coastline, the United States also came in third for natural resources, trailing behind Australia and Brazil. The country ranks No. 6 for tourist services and infrastructure.

Areas where the States fall short include price competitiveness (No. 115) and safety and security (No. 77). Malaysia ranked first for price competitiveness and Singapore took the top spot for safety and security.

On the previous report from 2021, Japan topped the list.

How Is The Post-Pandemic Tourism Rebound?

While the report points out that the tourism industry continues to be on the up and up coming out of the pandemic, many countries—including the United States—are experiencing growing pains.

Of the 119 TTDI-ranked economies, 71 increased their scores between the 2019 and 2024 editions, however the average index score is just 0.7% above pre-pandemic levels.

Countries in the Middle East had the strongest rebounds, with international tourist arrivals 20% above the 2019 level. The Americas, Europe and Africa had rates around 90%.

Sustainability of travel demand is also a consideration, a timely issue as a growing number of European cities are imposing or raising tourism taxes to help curb overtourism —or at least help offset its impacts.

Some challenges highlighted in the report include tourism labor shortages, flight routes not keeping up with demand and inflation.

China Recovers Its Position As Top Spender in 2023 As Asia and the Pacific Reopens to Tourism

unwto tourism gdp

Image Credit UNWTO   

China has recovered its position as top spender on international tourism in 2023 as Asia and the Pacific consolidates its recovery from the impacts of the pandemic. In 2022, the list of top spenders was headed by the United States. France, Spain and USA took the top spots for most-visited destinations.

Top Tourism Spenders in 2023

Chinese expenditure on travel abroad reached USD 196.5 billion in 2023, ahead of the United States (USD 150 billion), Germany (USD 112 billion), the United Kingdom (USD 110 billion) and France (USD 49 billion). Making up the top ten spenders for 2023 are Canada, Italy, India, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Korea. India jumped to 8th place, from 14th in 2019, confirming the growing importance of the country as a source market, while Italy rose from 10th to 7th position.

Top in arrivals and receipts: France, Spain and USA consolidate their positions

France consolidated its position as the world’s most visited destination in 2023 with 100 million international tourist arrivals. Spain was second with 85 million, followed by the United States (66 million), Italy (57 million) and Türkiye, which closed the top five with 55 million international tourists.

Completing the top ten most visited destinations in 2023 are Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany, Greece and Austria. Compared to before the pandemic, Italy, Türkiye, Mexico, Germany and Austria all rose one position, while the United Kingdom rose from 10th to 7th and Greece from 13th to 9th.

On the side on international tourism receipts, the ranking is led by the United States, earning USD 176 billion in 2023, followed by Spain (USD 92 billion), the United Kingdom (USD 74 billion), France (USD 69 billion) and Italy (USD 56 billion).

Following the above, destinations earning the most from international tourism in 2023 include the United Arab Emirates, Türkiye, Australia, Canada, Japan, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Macao (China), India and Mexico which complete the top 15 list of tourism earners.

Upward movements in the ranking among the top earners include the UK jumping to the 3rd position from 5th pre-pandemic, the United Arab Emirates from 13th to 6th, Türkiye from 12th to 7th, Canada from 15th to 9th, Saudi Arabia from 27th to 12th, and Mexico from 17th to 15th.

Croatia (from 32nd to 25th), Morocco (from 41st to 31st) and the Dominican Republic (43rd to 34th) also moved up in the Top 50 ranking by receipts in 2023, as did Qatar (from 51st to 37th) and Colombia (50th to 44th).

Looking ahead to a full recovery globally in 2024

As per the latest World Tourism Barometer, in 2023 international tourist arrivals recovered 89% of 2019 levels and 97% in Q1 2024. UN Tourism’s projection for 2024 points to a full recovery of international tourism with arrivals growing 2% above 2019 levels, backed by strong demand, enhanced air connectivity and the continued recovery of China and other major Asian markets.

Total export revenues from international tourism, including both receipts and passenger transport, reached an estimated USD 1.7 trillion in 2023, about 96% of pre-pandemic levels in real terms. Tourism direct GDP recovered pre-pandemic levels in 2023, reaching an estimated USD 3.3 trillion, equivalent to 3% of global GDP.

Sustainable Tourism – A Pathway to Sustainable Development

The expansion of tourism has brought forth substantial repercussions on both natural and human landscapes, prompting a paradigm shift towards sustainable development. The concept of sustainability, though rooted in earlier decades, has gained widespread acceptance as the guiding principle for the industry's future trajectory. Sustainable tourism transcends mere economic viability, embracing ecological integrity, long-term resilience, and its pivotal role in broader sustainable development agendas (Butler, 2001). It strives to foster practices within the tourism domain that yield positive outcomes across economic, societal, and environmental realms (UNWTO, 2024). Achieving sustainable tourism necessitates concerted efforts from diverse stakeholders, coupled with robust political leadership to ensure inclusivity and consensus. The remarkable growth of tourism over the years has not only fueled economic prosperity but has also emerged as a primary engine for job creation and wealth distribution. Statistical evidence from 2017 reveals that the tourism sector made a direct contribution of approximately 2.6 trillion US dollars to the global economy, highlighting its immense economic significance (UNEP & WTO, 2015).

This positive impact of sustainable tourism on the global economy has been halted by the pandemic and geopolitical conflicts. The pandemic has affected sustainable tourism and development in economic, environmental, social, and policy areas. The sudden halt in travel and tourism caused significant job losses, business closures, and revenue shortages, threatening sustainable tourism programs globally (Higgins-Desbiolles, 2020). This halt jeopardized ecological and wildlife conservation efforts that depend on the tourism industry. In addition, the pandemic showed the vulnerability of tourist-dependent communities, emphasizing the necessity for diversified economic strategies and sustainable tourism practices that stress local empowerment and equitable benefit-sharing (Guo et al., 2023).

Similarly, Geopolitical unrest in the world affects sustainable development and in turn sustainable development. Endangerment of cultural heritage sites, local communities are displaced, experience economic instability, and lose their means of subsistence. Tourists are deterred from visiting conflict zones due to the inherent dangers involved, which decreases visitor counts and revenue streams. This further undermines sustainable development initiatives and further weakens local economies. Moreover, the presence of geopolitical tensions may impede cross-border collaboration on sustainable tourism initiatives and disrupt global cooperation, thereby restricting the flow of information, and resources. Ultimately, broader endeavors toward sustainable development are impeded by the instability and insecurity caused by geopolitical unrest and conflicts; this perpetuates cycles of poverty, inequality, and environmental degradation in the regions impacted (Georgescu et al., 2024).

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), established to guide global efforts toward sustainability, underscore the pivotal role of sustainable tourism as an effective pathway to achieving sustainable development. Specifically, SDG 8, with its Target 8.9, emphasizes the importance of promoting sustainable tourism to generate inclusive and sustainable economic growth, productive employment, and decent work for all (Venugopalan, 2021). Sustainable tourism development entails satisfying the present requirements of tourists and local people while preserving resources for future generations (Nguyen et al., 2022). This strategy prioritizes the balanced and coordinated growth of tourist activities in alignment with society, the economy, resources, and the environment. It represents a practical implementation of sustainable principles within the tourism industry (Wu et al., 2022).

To attain sustainable tourism, it is imperative to establish a comprehensive plan for sustainable tourism development. This plan should consider various factors including social engagement, the competency of state managers, the quality of tourism services, the caliber of human resources, infrastructure development, and the quality of tourism resources (Vu & Hartley, 2022). Furthermore, sustainable tourism should actively contribute to fulfilling the requirements of visitors, conserving the environment, improving the welfare of local populations, stimulating economic growth, and advocating for local culture (Tovmasyan, 2022). Engaging stakeholders, such as local communities, tourism companies, and tourists, is essential to guarantee that development yields favorable outcomes for all parties involved (Slivar, 2018).

Effective governance is crucial for the sustainable development of tourism, as it requires the implementation of policies and management practices that can effectively address global environmental concerns and support sustainable growth in the industry (Guo et al., 2019). Furthermore, the sustainable tourism sector greatly relies on community participation, where the active engagement of the community in shaping the policies for the growth of the tourism industry is essential for achieving success (CHAMIDAH et al., 2020). Destinations might strive to achieve 'responsible' tourism by embracing a vocabulary that promotes sustainable and responsible tourist practices (Mihalič et al., 2016). In conclusion, sustainable tourism serves as a pathway for sustainable development by promoting responsible practices that balance economic growth, environmental conservation, and socio-cultural well-being. By incorporating principles of sustainability into tourism development, destinations can ensure long-term benefits for all stakeholders involved, contributing to the overall goal of achieving sustainable development.

Recognizing that Discover Sustainability is an essential forum for discussing finance policy developments and interdisciplinary research that addresses all seventeen Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations. The purpose of the journal is to educate the public, policymakers, and researchers on how to sustain planetary and human health to ensure the well-being of present and future generations while adhering to the constraints of the natural world. This will be accomplished through this topical collection that aims to contribute to the literature on sustainable development goals, including the concepts, theories, and practices, to provide insights into the current state of the field. This topical collection welcomes research, reviews, perspectives, comments, brief communications, case Studies, registered reports, and data notes from across the full range of disciplines concerned with sustainability.

The Collection shall appreciate multi-study submissions, while quantitative, and qualitative studies will also be accepted.

The Most Glamorous City in the US

W e recently compiled a report on the 26 Most Glamorous Cities in the US and in this article, we will look at the most glamorous city in the US.

Overview of the Tourism and Travel Sector

The pent-up demand for tourism and travel after the uplifting of the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic can be seen exhibited in the tourism trends across the globe. Data from Mastercard Incorporated (NYSE: MA ) shows that global leisure travel increased by around 31% in March 2023 as compared to its pre-pandemic levels in 2019. This translates to a 25% year-over-year growth between 2022 and 2023. Leisure and business travel have been on the path to recovery since 2022, increasing at the same rate. The sectors experienced a 33% increase in March 2023 as compared to its pre-pandemic levels in March 2019, and a year-over-year-to-date growth rate of 42% between 2022 and 2023. Trends across the tourism and travel sector show that travelers are keen to travel and experience the world, with total spending on experiences increasing by 65% in March 2023 as compared to its pre-pandemic levels in 2019. Similarly, the spending on things during traveling also increased by 12% between the same time period.

A report released by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) titled World Tourism Barometer January 2024 shows that international tourism has recovered nearly 88% of its pre-pandemic demand. The sector is anticipated to catch up to its pre-pandemic demand in 2024. Estimates show that around 1.3 billion international tourists were recorded across the globe in 2023. This number shows a growth of 34% over 2022. The UNWTO Tourism Confidence Index survey further highlights the positive trajectory for international travel, with 67% tourism professionals expressing belief in "better or much better prospects" in 2024 as compared to 2023. The tourism direct gross domestic product (TDGDP) as of 2023 stands at $3.3 trillion, which translates to 3% of the global GDP according to preliminary tourism estimates. These levels are the same as pre-pandemic levels in 2019, primarily fueled by recovering international and domestic levels. You can also look at 30 Most Visited Cities in the US by Foreigners for further insights.

Travel and Tourism in the USA

The tourism and travel sector in the USA reflects global trends. According to estimates by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, which is an official website of the US government, the travel and tourism industry as a whole grew by 53.6% in 2021, and 21.0% in 2022. When computed by real gross domestic product (GDP), the broader economy grew by 5.8% in 2021 and 1.9% in 2022. According to our report on the 30 Most Visited Cities by American Tourists , New York's New York City, California's San Jose, Georgia's Atlanta, and California's Los Angeles were the most popular tourist destinations across the country. These trends are primarily driven by the glitz and glamor of these cities, taking the lead in fashion, fine food, luxury, and tourist attractions.

Some of the most prominent luxury companies boosting tourism include Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H ) and Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAR ). On June 1, Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced the debut of the Park Hyatt brand into Hunan, central China. The Park Hyatt Changsha will take up the uppermost floors of the International Finance Square (IFS), which is a 1,000-foot-tall skyscraper and the tallest building in the Hunan province. Guests at the Park Hyatt Changsha will thus have unhindered access to the largest commercial complex in the city, buzzing with high-end fashion.

Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ:MAR) is another prominent name in the luxury hospitality industry. On June 3, the hotel company announced plans to take three luxury properties in the United States under the umbrella of the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio. These three iconic properties include Turtle Bay Resort, The Resort at Pelican Hill, and a luxury Midtown hotel located in New York City. The Turtle Bay Resort is located on the North Shore of O'ahu, Hawai'i, and is expected to become a part of The Ritz-Carlton brand portfolio this summer. The Resort at Pelican Hill is a 504-acre luxury resort located in Newport Beach, California, and is set to join the luxury portfolio by Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ:MAR) on July 1.

Lastly, New York City's luxury hotel stands at the heart of Midtown Manhattan, with the biggest tourist attractions including Times Square, Fifth Avenue, The Museum of Modern Art, Central Park, and The Museum of Modern Art nearby. It is set to join the Marriott Bonvoy on June 5. Here is what Leeny Oberg, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President, Development, Marriott International, had to say about the development:

"In the last few weeks, we finalized deals for conversions of three incredible properties, adding over 1,000 rooms to our system and continuing to underscore our commitment to luxury. We are sought out by owners because of the depth and breadth of our brand portfolio and the power of our platform to drive results. Today, the company has an industry-leading global luxury distribution of over 510 open hotels with another 234 luxury hotels in the signed pipeline. We look forward to strengthening our leadership in this important customer segment as we continue to work with owners to maximize the potential of their projects."

Our Methodology

In order to compile a list of the 26 most glamorous cities in the US, we used a consensus approach and a visitor survey through Reddit. Firstly, we consulted ten online travel expert resources to compile a list of the 26 most glamorous cities in the US. Next, we looked at ten Reddit threads that asked commenters to mention the most glamorous US cities they had visited in the United States. We only chose threads that had more than 50 comments and studied more than 500 comments to shortlist the most glamorous cities in the United States that had the most recommendations by Reddit users. We then counted the number of upvotes on each comment and chose the top 26 cities with the most number of upvotes. The 26 most glamorous cities in the US are arranged in ascending order of their number of upvotes on Reddit.

Note: This list is not exhaustive and does not reflect our opinion. The ranking is solely based on the opinions of mass consumers on Reddit.
