The New7Wonders destinations have shown resilience during the most important crisis due to coronavirus and now that the world is slowly beginning to travel again, they are once again showing its importance for the tourism industry. In a recent report, the ETIAS news website showed the force each Wonder has and how it can impact on the sector recovery.
The ETIAS report offers didactic infographics that show where are located the New 7 Wonders of the World, the New 7 Wonders of Nature, the New 7 Wonders Cities as well as the Ancient Wonders. There are also infographics that rank the most visited wonders and other that show the cost of Covid.
The most visited Wonder in 2020 was the Wonder City of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia with 12,400,000 visitors, followed by South Korea’s Wonder of Nature Jeju Island with 10,200,000 visitors. According to the ETIAS research, the Wonder that has lost the most revenue during the coronavirus outbreak is the Wonder City of Beirut: from 2019 to 2020 lost a total revenue of 12.9 billion.
“With these sites at the top of every traveller’s mind, we see the attractions drive tourism to their respective countries with millions of people travelling from across the globe to view these magnificent wonders in person”, the report points out and finishes with a light of hope “with the world moving towards less travel restrictions and more opportunities for people to explore different destinations, the wonders on this list should certainly feature in your next travel plans”.
The European Travel Information and Authorisation System will be launched in 2023 and in the meantime offers the latest news related to the tourism sector. The system will check the security credentials and charge a fee to travellers visiting EU member countries for business, tourism, medical or transit purposes.
