The second Mastercard Asia Pacific Destinations Index is an offshoot of Mastercard’s annual Global Destination Cities Index.
It takes an in-depth, focused look at tourism trends, ranking 171 destinations, including island resorts as well as towns and cities across the region, in terms of the total number of international overnight arrivals; cross-border spending; and the total number of nights spent at each destination. These 171 destinations are drawn from 22 countries across Asia Pacific and represent 90 percent of all international overnight arrivals within the region.
Public data is used in deriving the international overnight visitor arrivals and their cross-border spending in each of the destinations, using custom-made algorithms.
