I thought it would be interesting to show you what shoulder season is like, by comparing the last day of September with the first day in July, which was also a Saturday.
The numbers in parentheses show the situation a year ago. From July 1 to the eve of October 1, a two-month period, last year and this year, the difference was a decline of several thousand visitors a day from the mainland.
International traffic fell, too, but only slightly. And in case you’re curious, the year-to-year change has been up 4 or 5 percent across the board. For every five visitors in shoulder season, we get six in high season.
