The popularity of summer tourism in Israel has surged since last year, according to the latest figures released by the Tourism Authority of Israel (TAA).
In fact, the numbers are on the rise, reaching a high of 2.6 million in June, up from 1.8 million in April.
The number of summer tourists has grown significantly in the past year, with the number of visitors to the country rising by more than 30 percent, to nearly 3.6 percent.
This has led to a surge in the number and prices of summer tours in the country.
In 2016, there were about 4.5 million visitors to Israel in summer, according a TAA statement.
This year, the number is expected to reach about 4 million visitors, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in Israel, according the statement.
According to the TAA, summer tourism is a significant economic driver for the country, as well as contributing to the creation of new jobs for Israelis and foreign workers.
According a survey by Israel’s tourism authority, nearly one-third of Israelis over the age of 18 are summer visitors, and the number has risen steadily in recent years, with around 1.5 percent of the population in 2016 being summer visitors.
This year, summer tourist numbers are forecast to reach 2.7 million, which is a 7 percent increase over last year.
This represents a 5.1 percent increase in summer visitors compared to 2016, according an official statement from the TAAA.
The TAA says summer tourist arrivals are also increasing across the board, with summer visitors from around the world.
According the official statement, the summer tourism sector in Israel is expected reach a total of 6.7 billion Israel dollars ($7.3 billion) in 2020, up 3.4 percent from 2020.
The number of Israelis aged 18 to 29 accounted for almost 2 percent of total summer visitors in 2020.
In addition, the tourism sector is projected to be worth an additional 4.2 billion Israel francs ($4.9 billion) by 2020, a 13 percent increase from 2020, according TAA.
