Forecasted inbound tourism from Asia to the Netherlands 2020, by country

As of 2020, it is forecasted that approximately 1.53 million tourists from Asia will visit the Netherlands. It is expected that most of the tourists will come from China (incl. HongKong) with 305,000 visitors, whereas 195,000 and 130,000 tourists come from India and Japan. Observing the number of hotels guests from Asia, nearly 220,000 guests stayed in hotels in Noord-Holland in the first quarter of 2019. 30,000 guests had their stay in hotels in Zuid-Holland, whereas roughly 10,000 hotel guests were registered in Noord-Brabant. However, comparing the volume of tourists from China to the previous year, it is a decrease of 20 percent. This is mainly the cause of the coronavirus outbreak.

Overnight guests from China and Japan

Most of the Japanese tourists that spent their time in the Netherlands did so in Amsterdam. Just over 50,000 overnight guests from Japan were registered in the capital city in 2017, whereas Rotterdam counted 6,000 Japanese overnight guests in the same year. The same development can be seen with the number of overnight guests from China. 157,000 Chinese guests stayed in Amsterdam, while 19,000 and 8,000 guests had their overnight stay in Rotterdam and The Hague, respectively.

Total number of hotel guests in Amsterdam

Looking at the overall number of hotel guests from Asian countries in Amsterdam (Netherlands) in 2017, a total of 717,000 guests spent their stay in hotels in the city famous for its canals. Roughly 36,000 of these hotel guests came from Indonesia, whereas 30,000 from South Korea.
