Maintaining what is shaping up to be Fiji tourisms best ever year for international visitation, the destination has set a new four-year record for visitor arrivals for a month of July.

Figures released by Fijis Department of Information show the destination welcomed more than 66,500 visitors across the month of July 2010, the result eclipsing the best ever July record set in 2006 59,645 - by more than 11%.

The strong performance takes Fijis total visitor arrivals for the seven month period January to July to 339,056.

This in itself represents a 19% increase over the 283,560 total achieved in 2009.

Australian visitor figures once again topped the listings with close to 1,000 Australians visiting every day throughout July to help chalk up another new Australian monthly record for the destination.

The 29,436 Australian total recorded for the month represented a 19% increase on the 24,729 figure achieved for the same period in 2009.

New Zealand visitor intake again showed positive growth with a total of 13,949 Kiwis visiting across the month, that figure representing a 5.8% growth over the 13,181 achieved for the same month in 2009.

The positive Australia and New Zealand results were reflected across all of Fijis main markets including the Americas.

US figures increased by 5% while Canadian visitor arrivals showed positive growth for the first time this year with numbers increasing by 5%.

Visitor arrivals from China achieved a massive 149% increase.

Taiwan business grew by 45% while visitor arrivals from India climbed by 15%.

Tourism Fiji CEO Josefa Tuamoto said the destination was bracing itself for a very strong result from the region in August, the traditional holiday and travel month for much of the northern hemisphere.
