Marketing for Travel and Tourism Websites

New Zealand relies heavily on tourism with around 9% of its GDP coming from this practice alone. This derives from mainly the green, laid-back aspect which New Zealand promotes.

There are more than 2.5 million tourists coming here every year, providing more than 18% of the country’s exports. Most of them land on the Auckland airport, which is the largest, most popular and busy airport in the country.

Among the activities which tourists come here for there are: mountain-related sports, whale watching and bungee jumping. Some even come just for strolls in and around the mountainside – the pristine scenes are widely popular, mainly due to commercial exposure through the movie Lord of the Rings which was shot here.

Christchurch, Queenstown, Rotorua and Wellington are also airport hubs at which tourists land. The biggest airport carrier in New Zealand is Air New Zealand which was rated the third best long-haul in the world. The Telegraph has offered New Zealand the title of best country to visit on holiday in the world in 2012.

Tourism is also important due to the fact that it sustains over 180,000 full-time jobs over the entire span of a year. That means around 10% of the country’s total workforce is dealing in tourism-related jobs. Some tourists also land here due to New Zealand’s proximity to Australia.

The countries which send the most tourists to New Zealand are: Australia, UK, US, China, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Canada, Singapore and India.
