China was the top performing market for Singapore last year @STB_sg

Commenting on the strong growth in visitor arrivals for 2017, particularly from US, Mr Darren Tan, Managing Director of inbound travel agency World Express Group, said, "We saw an over 15 per cent year-on-year growth in our US arrivals in 2017, with most of the growth coming during the year-end winter season. We see mainly two types of clients – those here on fly-cruise programmes and leisure travellers who came here on tour groups or for individual travel. The growth could be attributed to more in-market promotions driven by both STB and the private sector, and good value in airfares and hotel rates. We are optimistic that 2018 will be an even stronger year for the US market."
