New York – April 14, 2014: 284,000 tourists from around the world arrived in Israel in March 2014, a 13% increase compared to the same period last year and a new all-time high for tourism to Israel.

705,288 tourists arrived in Israel between January and March 2014, a 17% increase compared to the same period last year. The U.S. is the number one source of tourism to Israel (20% of tourists to Israel come from North America), followed by much closer destinations such as Russia, Germany, France and the U.K.

“We are thrilled to see a continual increase in tourism to Israel following last year’s record-breaking figures,” said Haim Gutin, Israel Commissioner for Tourism, North and South America, “which attests to Israel’s growing reputation as one of the world’s most unique and inspiring travel destinations.”

A record 3.54 million tourists from around the world arrived in Israel in 2013.
