Pacific Asia Travel Association

It is common knowledge that tourism has become one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world, providing countless benefits in each destination. Driven by the growing purchasing power in emerging economy markets, increased air connectivity, and more affordable ways to travel, Asia Pacific is expected to receive a large influx of arrivals as the result of increased intraregional demand.

Today, travelers don’t purchase packages like they once did. We search online, base our decision-making on reviews made from strangers, share experiences – good and bad – on social media, and even buy our airline tickets or make hotel reservations on our smartphone.
