Number of international visitor arrivals in Singapore 2009-2019

In 2019, the total international visitor arrivals to Singapore reached approximately 19.11 million. Singapore experienced a record number of visitors in that year, following strong year-on-year growth in visitor numbers since 2015.

From transit point to tourist destination

Singapore is one of Asia’s leading transport hubs for international air passenger traffic, and serves as a transit point between Asia and the rest of the world. It is surrounded by several popular destinations among international tourists, such as Thailand, Bali in Indonesia, and Malaysia. Even so, Singapore had managed to market itself as a must-visit tourist destination in its own right, attracting repeat visitors by offering unique city experiences such as the Gardens by the Bay, and integrated resorts boasting casinos and amusement parks.

Profile of the international visitor to Singapore

China remained Singapore’s largest feeder market for international visitors in that year, followed by Indonesia and India. The majority of international visitors to Singapore were there for holiday purposes, and stayed for an average of 3.4 nights. This could be due to the relatively expensive cost of accommodation there and the relatively compact location of the major attractions, making it easier for tourists to see the sights in a short period of time.
