Singapore visitor arrivals registered a 0.5% decline in October 2009 to reach 845,000. Visitor days were estimated at 3.3 million days, a year-on-year decline of 4.6% in comparison with October 2008.

 Indonesia (137,000), P.R. China (83,000) Australia (82,000), Malaysia (69,000), and India (67,000) were Singapore’s top five visitor-generating markets in October 2009. These markets accounted for 52% of total visitor arrivals for the month.

In October 2009, nine out of Singapore top fifteen visitor arrival markets posted growth over October 2008. China recorded its first growth (+8.4%) since May 2008, spurred by an unprecedented eight-day Golden Week holiday. Hong Kong SAR registered the largest percentage growth (+27.4%) amongst the top fifteen markets due to attractive travel package promotions. Malaysia (+26.2%), Vietnam (+11.8%), Australia (+7.6%), Germany (+3.7%) and the UK (+2.3%) all saw growth, which can be attributed in part to promotions under the Singapore Tourism Board’s 2009 Reasons to enjoy Singapore campaign. Thailand (+5.2%) and the USA (+2.8%) also posted growth. South Korea’s arrivals, however, declined 48.1% partly due to continued cautious travel sentiments around the global outbreak of Influenza A (H1N1-2009).
