NZ Arrivals until 5th February 2012

We are half way through February and we still have negative traveller arrivals into New Zealand. The weather in Auckland is great but the global downturn seems to have a major effect on our traditional markets. The new connection into Malaysia is creating good news on the Asia Front. We are starting to see some flow on from this at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast with more FIT travellers booking online direct with us. We did a Tourism Board marketing trip into Asia a few years ago and seeing some response from the connections made. Tourism is always a “Long Game” plan.
Total visitor arrivals are up by -0.6% compared to the same four week period last year.
Ups: China 29%, Australia 3%, Malaysia 58%,
USA 3%

Downs: Japan -25%, Canada -5%, UK -14%,
Korea -15%, Germany -6%, Singapore -5%

Auckland's top Restaurants offer Terrific food, served with great charm and efficiency in a smart but probably somewhat informal atmosphere.

A short walk from Eden Park makes us the perfect destination for all their sporting fixtures.
