Mastercard's Global Destination Cities Index 2016

Mastercard's Global Destination Cities Index 2016 | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

Now in its seventh year, the Global Destination Cities Index is a tracking study of international travel destinations, cross-border spend and the internal patterns. In addition to ranking Bangkok as the world's most visited city and Osaka as the fastest-growing destination, the Index also highlights three distinct story lines for 2016.

 

  1. The growth trajectory of cities outside the top 20 list.
  2. Deeper insights into the motivations and travel spend behaviour of visitors to those cities.
  3. Changes in regional dynamics, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. Government officials, travel executives and other sectors of business will find that this year's report reflects the changing nature of regional markets and illustrates the unpredictable nature of the global consumer.
