In addition, according to the Study findings, Asia Pacific travellers are the most likely to mix business with leisure while overseas.Twenty-two percent of Asia Pacific travellers say their most recent trip was for business and leisure, ahead of the global average of 16 percent.Vivian Pan, senior director of cross-border and channel marketing, Visa Asia Pacific, said, “Asia Pacific is an extremely well-connected region, and going abroad for leisure travel holds a special appeal for Asia Pacific travellers as they are keen to explore new places and gain new international experiences.“This love of international travel, coupled with rising disposable personal incomes, has led to travellers from this region driving the increased desire for more trips, leading to more travel spending.”In the past two years, the global survey showed travellers from Singapore took the most leisure trips (95 percent), followed by those from Hong Kong (92 percent), South Korea (90 percent) and Malaysia (90 percent).Future Travel Spending from Asia PacificFuture spending on international leisure travel from Asia Pacific travellers looks bright for the travel industry as well, with Asia Pacific leading globally with the sharpest rise in terms of likelihood to spend more (71 percent), followed by the Americas (66 percent) and Europe (56 percent).According to the Study, respondents from Asia Pacific indicated that their travel spend for their next trip is likely to average US$3,501.Travellers from China, India and Australia are likely to be the top spenders from Asia Pacific countries on their their next trip, (US$4,501 each), which ranks them third globally behind travellers from the United States and Saudi Arabia (US$5,501 each).
