UNWTO Reveals How the Pandemic Affected International Travel

Although there was some recovery in May, international tourism is much under pressure of the continued COVID-19 spread. There are still travel restrictions for foreign guests in most countries but domestic tourism starts to rebound slowly. Even hotels in London, Bangkok, Paris, and other gateway cities suffer from a drastic decline in visitors. As UNWTO reports, the number of overnight international arrivals in January to May decreased by 147 million compared to the same period of 2020 and by a whopping 460 million compared to the same period of 2019.
