Qatar’s festivities in May have proven a big boon to the country’s visitor arrival figures, with the past month’s unique events and offerings under ‘Eid in Qatar’ driving a significant influx of visitors, Qatar Tourism has said.
May international arrivals exceeded 166,000, marking it as the month with the highest number of visitors in 2022. Further, the figures represent more than a quarter of all visitors welcomed over the first five months of this year.
The latest data on visitor arrivals point to a steady recovery of Qatar’s tourism sector, with the year-to-date total (580,000) fast approaching the overall arrivals figure of 2021 (611,000).
