UNWTO predicts 1bn tourists to travel abroad this year
The demand for adventure holidays appears to be growing sharply and people are increasingly keen to head to far-flung foreign countries.
Despite the challenging economic climate, holidaymakers are not willing to compromise on the quality of their annual break and the clamour for exciting trips to destinations such as Peru, India and Tanzania is becoming even more intense.
Indeed, the UN World Tourism Organisation has highlighted the extent of the rising demand for international travel, as it has predicted one billion people will head overseas this year.
Secretary general at the organisation Taleb Rifai suggested that this incredible figure will provide a major boost for economies all around the world.
"By the end of 2012, one seventh of the world's population will have crossed international borders as tourists in a single year," he remarked.
