Malaysia has recorded an increase of 6.9% growth in tourist arrivals in India for the first six months of 2012.

The country registered an overall growth of 2.4% with 11,632,483 international visitors compared to 11,362,862 arrivals during the same period last year.

The ASEAN region continued to be the largest contributor with 73.8% total tourist arrivals to Malaysia. The country’s top ten g enerating markets were Singapore, Indonesia , China, Thailand, Brunei, India, Australia, Philippines, Japan, and United Kingdom.

ASEAN saw a 1% decrease in arrivals due to the change in recording arrivals based on nationality instead of country of residence; thus expatriates working/living in ASEAN countries were not regarded as ASEAN travelers. This reflected in the decreased arrivals from Singapore (-4.8%), Thailand (-11.5%), Brunei (-1.2%) and Cambodia (-4.2%).
