3.45 M foreign tourists in 2010

The Philippines attracted some 3.45 million foreign tourists last year, according to the Bureau of Immigration. This is almost 20 percent higher than the 2.89 million tourists who came in 2009.

Filipinos who travelled abroad and came back reached 3.47 million last year.  See the news report today here.

While attracting more than 3 million foreign tourists is definitely a good development, this still looks “small” compared to other smaller but more dynamic economies like Singapore and HK, which attract at least 10 million tourists a year.
