According to British newspaper The Guardian, which quoted information from the British Tourist Board:
"The highest-spending foreign holidaymakers in Britain are the Qataris, who spend an average of £215 a night over 15 nights. Kuwaitis spend about £215 a night too, but over 12 days, while Saudis spend £207 a night over 13 nights."
Tourism in the UK accounts for 9% of the total GDP.
Interesting stuff, but we find ourselves wishing we could divert some of this tourism to our region for a change; Apparently, not only does the Gulf export oil, but also tourists it seems…
