Tourism to Israel in 2017 is climbing like a rocket baby!

tourism to israel 2017After a couple of so-so years (after a record-breaking 2013), it looks like 2017 is heading to be a cracking year for incoming tourism numbers to Israel!

Just released, the numbers for March 2017 show an increase of 22% on March 2016 – which means an impressive 293,000 tourists arrived in Israel!

Overall for 2017, there is an increase of 24% on the same period last year. Which means a total of 793,000 tourists in the first three months of the year (only 597,000 in the same period in 2016)!

We met a great bunch of tourists when we hopped over to Jordan in late March (don’t miss our experience of 3 amazing days in Jordan here), and they were literally gushing about how great Israel was and how they wished they had more time to see everything – I guess that means we can expect them back for a second visit!

Time to book your ticket? We think so…
