Figures released today by the Pacific Asia Travel Association show that the numbers of international visitors to the Asia Pacific region fell by an estimated six percent in July 2009 compared to July 2008, an improvement over the months of May and June which recorded year-on-year reductions of ten percent and eight percent respectively.
