Ever since the rise of mass tourism, around the 1960s, one segment that has risen the fastest is the city break. Cities today make up 45% of all global travel, as per business intelligence received from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). Some cities have grown excessively dependent on tourism for its GDP, contributing disproportionately. Cancun in Mexico tops this, with a GDP contribution of just short of half the total. Marrakesh in Morocco stands second. Majority of Marrakesh’s visitors tend to be French. Macau in China, Orlando in the US state of Florida and Antalya in Turkey take up the next two spots in tourism dependency as part of city GDP. Dubai, Las Vegas, Bangkok, Venice and Dubrovnik n Croatia make up the rest of the top ten.
