More Tourists are Interested in Budapest than in Beijing

The number of tourists visiting in Budapest has reached four million, and now the city rivals the most popular Asian towns by the information of the Euromonitor International Top 100 City Destinations 2018.

Budapest closed a successful year according to the results of Euromonitor International, with the number of visitors reaching four million this year, which means a 9.1 percent increase. This number was only three million in 2017. According to the non-final data, the Hungarian capital was ranked 59th on the top 100 list. Despite the great interest, it is two places worse than one year ago. However, this is a very strong position in the Central and Eastern European region.

Prague is ranked 21st with internationally incoming tourism, while Vienna is the 36th, with 6.3 million foreign visitors.

With its four million visitors, Budapest is at the level of European cities such as Munich, St. Petersburg or Jakarta. The Australian Sydney preceded the Hungarian capital by only 150 thousand people.

Budapest was also ahead of Beijing

Based on this year's figures, Hungary has also surpassed Beijing, as the number of foreign travelers has increased from 3 million 670 thousand to 4 million, while 3 million 676 thousand tourists visited Beijing from other countries.

There could be a historical record in Budapest

The number of guest nights in 2018 can reach as much as 31 million, making it the best year for domestic tourism, according to the Hungarian Tourism Agency (MTÜ). From 2010 until 2017, the number of tourists increased by 51 percent, at the same time tourism revenues almost doubled. A 1 percent increase in GDP was the result of a 10 percent increase in the gross national product. According to the statistics office, in October 2018 the number of domestic tourists increased by 10 percent and the number of arrivals from the United States to Budapest increased by 30 percent.
