Significant Growth of Romanian Tourism
Romanians’ departures to different countries grew over the first 11 months of 2006 by 24.2% compared to the same period of 2005, while foreigner arrivals grew by 2%. These results were published by the National Statistics Institute.

94% of the foreign tourists come from European countries, almost half (46%) coming from the EU. 83% of the Romanians going abroad used road transportation.

Arrivals in lodging units grew by 6.9% in the same period, amounting to 5.8 million persons, as compared to 2005. Significant increases have been reported by youth hotels and hostels, 52%, inns, 35% and camping units, 22%.

    I think we still need to work on our skills of atracting tourists in Romania. If we improve how hotels, roads, cities look like, we might get significant money only from tourism (look at Greece and copy :))

    Well, Greece is not exactly at the top, but still. We could borrow a few tricks. I think having customer oriented personnel would be the first step. Then improve infrastructure and the works. The change in attitude always makes subsequent changes easier to digest.
