A survey conducted by the Accor hotel operator provide similar information, which is made of 2,500 business travelers in Asia Pacific. The news contained in Channel NewsAsia, Tuesday, August 21, 2012 which states, of the Asia Pacific Business Traveller Research conducted each year to determine the travel and behavioral preferences of business travelers in Asia Pacific.

Seen from a later survey that most travelers come to Singapore for a business trip, the city became the main destination travelers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and India.

Evan Lewis, Vice President of Communications Accor Asia Pacific said, the business is a reflection of the sentiment and business travel volume is a reflection of how the economy runs.

Business travelers in Asia on average spend 125 Singapore dollars per night for hotel accommodation during the first six months of 2012, up 3 percent compared to last year.
