One day, traveling between countries was very hard. It took too much time (days, months and years) and it was too expensive, only few who could afford it. That’s why traveling was only for some main reasons, such as merchants, scientists and of course I won’t forget wars, because of the big number of travelers in such events.
Now, with the great luxury of 20th century civilization, travel is easy. With a few hours people can travel around the globe, exploring the far reaches of the earth. Getting to know the history of the peoples who passed from those lands and how their inhabitants continued to preserve their historical heritage. Tourism has become an accessible luxury from all sides. Tourism services have a special sector in every country. The aim of this sector is to upgrade and develop tourism services to make sure of the quality that tourists receive all around the country.
I will put in your hands dear reader, the global statistics for a number of years to notice the great progress that has occurred in this area. The statistics were published by the World Tourism Organization in 2016.
– In 1950, the number of tourists in the world twenty-five million tourists.
– In 1980, the number of tourists increased to 278 million tourists.
– In 2000, the number of world tourists reached 674 million.
– In 2016, the figure has doubled to 1235 million.
As you have seen, the globe is witnessing wide-scale tourism movements, leading to major developments in the sector.
As for the financial return, we will recall it from the same source (World Tourism Organization)
– In 1950, the financial return reached $ 2 billion.
– In 1980, the amount rose to $ 104 billion.
– In 2000, the figure increased to $ 495 billion.
– In 2016, the figure tripled, with a financial return of $ 1.220 billion.
As you have noted, the global expense of tourism welfare is on the rise. This was a major reason to double the efforts of all countries to provide comfort and enjoyment to their visitors of tourists.
