Belize’s tourism industry is getting off to a booming start this year. The destination has experienced a 24 percent increase in visitors compared to this time in 2015.

Nepal Tourism Slow to Recover
Despite herculean efforts, the tourism industry in Nepal is not recovering at as swift a pace as many had hoped. Tourism is the lifeblood of the country, but visitors have stayed away and the country is struggling to recover.

Visitors Send More in Vegas
Visitors are spending more when they go to Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Tourism Authority. In most expense categories, there was an increase in spending on everything from lodging and food to transportation and shows.


It’s been on the horizon for awhile, but East Bay tourism in Oakland, Calif., is heating up and hotel builders are beginning to notice. Get ready for the next hotel boom.

Goa made headlines when it decided to makeover its beaches to draw more visitors and now, with crowded beaches, the state is expanding to its rivers to help shoulder the burden of visitor numbers.

Cebu, Philippines, is mulling a tourism code to formulate plans and recommend measures to preserve, enforce and promote Cebuano history, culture and arts, among others.

The U.S. is no longer allowing its government workers to travel to Acapulco. The city was experiencing a decline in bloodshed, but lately it has returned to the ranks of the world’s most deadliest cities.
