The Hong Kong dollar is on the rise. Rather than spending money in notoriously-expensive Hong Kong, locals may travel to other Asian destinations where their strengthening currency will go further.

Poland is among the 20 most popular tourist destinations in the world (though it only ranks 11th in Europe). The country should get a boost next year when the historic city of Wroclaw is named a European Capital of Culture.
Japan has announced that its number of international arrivals should top 19.5 million by the end of this year. The number of regional tourists visiting the country from China, Taiwan, South Korea and Vietnam increased dramatically in 2015.
