France tourists

The attacks that shook France also frightened their tourists, suggests a new data report.

Less Chinese, Japanese and European refused to cross the French border in 2016, reports Le Figaro.

In conclusion, in 2016, the French capital lost no less than 1.5 million tourist, which means a financial loss of 1,3 billion euros.

The number of tourists who visited the Ile-de-France region was of 31 million tourists, which is with 4.7% less than in 2015.

The number of foreign tourists dropped by 8.8% and the number of French tourists with 0.8%.

Regarding the total number of nights spent in Paris’ hotels, the drop was off 7.2%.

However, the most alarming decrease was reported in the Chinese tourist rate.

Apparently, almost 300.000 Chinese refused to visit Paris or another French region in 2016.

Meanwhile, the situation in the case of the Japanese tourists is not looking bright either.

225.000 Nippon tourists chose another holiday destination last year.

The impact of these terrorist attacks from Paris also reflected on another main objective like the Arc de Triomph, who greeted fewer visitors in 2016.

Popular Louvre Musem was also affected by the nasty incidents. The museum reported a 13.3 % in the visitor’s rate.

The Versailles Palace and the Disneyland theme park were also affected by the terrorist attacks.

France initiated the emergency state shortly after the jihadist attacks from 2015 and 2016.

The authorities are still on a high alert.
