Tourism is still on growth path despite terror attacks and political unrest. Although there is no impact on the overall volume of worldwide outbound trips this year, there are changes in the travel behavior as for instance Europeans play safe by switching destinations. In addition, changes in Asian travel habits have been recognized, but – generally speaking – the Asian outbound travel boom will continue in 2017, according to the experts at IPK’s World Travel Monitor® Forum in Pisa, held 3rd - 4th of November 2016.
