International visitors accounted for 36 per cent of total guest nights in January 2001. Between the two January months, international visitors staying in hotels recorded the largest growth rate of the accommodation types, with a 37 per cent rise in guest nights. Total international visitor guest nights increased by 24 per cent in January 2001, compared with January 2000. Guests nights increased from all country groupings.
