Tourism in Brunei
Brunei recorded a total of 259,000 tourists in 2017, ranking 160th in the world in absolute terms.
That smaller countries regularly perform lower in a comparison of the absolute number of guests, is obvious. By putting the tourist numbers in relation to the population of Brunei, the result is much more comparable picture: With 0.60 tourists per resident, Brunei ranked 77th in the world. In Southeast Asia, it ranked 3rd.
Brunei generated around 177.00 million US Dollar in the tourism sector alone. This corresponds to 1.3 percent of its the gross domestic product.Back to overview: Brunei
Development of the tourism sector in Brunei from 2004 to 2017
The following chart shows the number of tourist arrivals registered in Brunei each year. Anyone who spends at least one night in the country but does not live there for more than 12 months is considered a tourist. Insofar as the survey included the purpose of the trip, business trips and other non-tourism travel purposes have already been excluded. The number of people passing through within the same day, and e.g. crew members of ships or flights are also not considered as tourists in most countries. If the same person travels in and out more than once within the same year, each visit counts again.
Revenues in tourism
In 2001, tourism revenues amounted to 155.00 million USD, or about 2.8 percent of the gross national product. Within 16 years, the country's dependence on tourism has decreased substantially.
