Articles and reports: 87-003-X19960042885


The analysis begins by examining the development of the Asian travel market in comparison with the European travel market, which remains the most important market for Canada. Next certain characteristics of visitors from two countries are explored, in particular: first Japan, and then, more briefly, South Korea. Finally, a few of the events that contributed to the extraordinary expansion of this market are described. The focus is put on Japan because so many Japanese tourists visit Canada and spend so much money, and on South Korea because it has the highest growth rate in travel to Canada.
