Steep rise in tourist arrivals

Figures released by The National Tourism Center show that there has been a 50.9% increase in the number of tourists arriving in Mongolia in the first six months of 2010 over the corresponding period last year. Citizens from Asia Pacific countries account for more than half of the 233,612 foreign citizens who came, followed by those from Europe.
2009 was a bad year for the industry, with the global economic recession complementing the swine flu scare in Mongolia to finally show a 20% slump from arrivals the previous year. This year’s tourists are estimated to have contributed USD 88.3 million to Mongolia’s economy.
