[photopress:travel_tour_group.jpg,full,alignright]A survey of American travelers by AAA and GlobalInsight has some interesting findings.
China and India may see larger jumps in American visitors this summer than any other country. China may see a 13% increase, to 573,000 American visitors.
Travel to Canada and Mexico will be about the same this summer as last.
Travel to Italy should be up nearly 5%, to 1.6 million American travelers.
Travel to France should jump by nearly 7% to about 1.1 million American travelers.
Travel to Germany ought to increase by slightly more than 4%, to 724,000 American travelers.
Which goes to show that although much is made of the China travel boom the facts are it is still a long, long way behind many, more traditional tourist countries.
