January 20, 2013 (Newswire.com) - Pinnacle Destinations Inc would like to wish everyone a happy new year for travel. 2013 has officially begun and looking back, 2012 was an amazing year destinations and tourists alike. With over 1 billion people traveling around the globe, top destinations for travel saw large increases in visitor numbers this year despite a still slowly returning economy. The fact remains that despite the slow increase of the economy, it is still increase, however slow. With the increase of the economy, both popular destinations and growing travel destinations, all enjoyed higher visitor numbers for another consecutive year. Although the totals are not completely tallied yet this year, all the results are all pointing to an even more successful year to come.
While 2012's numbers may not all be released as of yet, the ones they have show that the expected trends from 2011 held true and if that is the case, than it appears that most can expect the same again in 2013. Trends in 2011 showed many things including an increase of momentum in international tourism, increases in tourism to many countries including Asia and the Middle East as well as despite economic difficulties, people continue to choose to spend their money on travel.
In 2012, some of the milestones that were seen included another increase in tourism during the holidays, record sales in travel and the 1 billionth tourist on December 13th 2012 as well, making 2012 the biggest year for travel yet. Some of the most popular cities for travel last year included New York who welcomed over 50 million visitors from both the U.S. and internationally, the city of London, who hosted the 2012 Summer Olympics and saw hundreds of thousands of additional travelers because of this and of course Paris. Though the top destinations do tend to fluctuate year after year at least to an extent, Paris is always one of the top destinations for travel both internationally and domestically.
The trends are showing us that what most countries can expect to see is yet another increase in the number of travelers in 2013. With this in mind, we can also anticipate more spending and more jobs in the industry as well. Welcome to the world of travel and vacations.
