Indians among the top three spenders in Singapore



In February, 62,999 Indian tourists visited Singapore, which was 5.6 per cent better than a year ago, and in March the number was 70,472 visitors, unchanged from March 2013.

SINGAPORE: Indians were among the top three spenders in Singapore during their visit here in the first quarter of this year, Singapore Tourism Board said today.

But spending by the Indians during the quarter was off by 3 per cent on the year at SGD284 million due to a fall in arrivals and less per capita expenditure of leisure visitors, the board said.


The Indian tourist arrivals in Singapore was 65,557 in January which is down by 7.9 per cent a year ago.


In February, 62,999 Indian tourists visited Singapore, which was 5.6 per cent better than a year ago, and in March the number was 70,472 visitors, unchanged from March 2013.
