spain tourismSPAIN’S tourism industry is anticipating its most successful year yet.

A record 68.1 million tourists visited Spain in 2015.

But January figures for holiday bookings this summer are up by 27% compared to the same period last year, according to travel association ABTA.

Aside from its obvious attractions, the rise is partly attributed to political instability in other holiday destinations.

“Increased global insecurity has led people to head for tried-and-trusted places,” an Abta spokesperson said.

Portugal has also seen a rise in popularity with a 32% increase in reservations.

  1. If it was’nt for the stupidity of rigid fixed school holiday periods, then I think that many would choose Spring or Autumn. Southern Europe is way too hot in summer for young children.
