MIJAS, saw a rise in Asian, Scandinavian and French holiday makers in 2012. According to the tourist office in Virgen de la Peña square they are making up half of the town’s tourist trade.
The rest are Spanish, British and German. Even so, the total figures of people who visited the tourist office fell. But town hall spokesman Mario Bravo isn’t worried. “Thanks to the Internet, people bring information with them. I think it’s great that they find out about the region before they come.”
He also thinks 2013 will be an even better year. “I expect to see more Chinese tourists now that their county’s government has become less strict and more visas are granted. Hopefully more Japanese will come also, like they used to in the 80’s.”
