Maybe some of you wonder what is UNWTO Tourism Highlights is and for those who wonder, here are a brief description and aims of UNWTO Tourism Highlights from UNWTO's official perspective;

Tourism Highlights aims to provide a consolidated set of key figures and trends for international tourism in the year prior to its date of publication. The 2009 Edition presents in 12 pages a snapshot of international tourism in the world for 2008 based on the latest available information collected from national sources. Trends and results are analysed for the world, regions and major regional destinations, with statistics included on international tourist arrivals and international tourism receipts. Furthermore, it provides the ranking of top tourism destinations by arrivals and receipts, as well as information on outbound tourism generating regions and a list of top source markets in terms of spending.
