Arequipa received 390,000 tourists in January-June period

So far this year, the Andean region of Arequipa has been visited by 390,000 domestic and foreign tourists, a similar figure compared to the same period last year, Arequipa's Regional Directorate of Foreign Trade and Tourism reported.
From January to June this year, 300,000 Peruvian tourists arrived in the "White City", while the number of foreign visitors was 90,000.
The peak season in Arequipa began at the end of June and will last until September and October; that is why they expect that this figure can increase in the next months.
Last year, Arequipa received 640,000 domestic tourists and 180,000 foreign tourists.
Local authorities expected to surpass last year's figure by 20 percent, but the rate of growth has slowed due to the international financial crisis and AH1N1 flu.
Despite global problems, Arequipa expects to receive 200,000 foreign tourists, a 10 percent increase over 2008.
