Key indicators

Bed nights



Travel key indicators: the darker the square the larger the value.

Dark squares in the middle (vertically) mean the main season is in the summer. Dark squares on the top and the bottom mean the main season is in the winter. Gradually darkening squares from left to right signify growth over the years.

It is important to notice that the largest values (darkest squares) are not necessarily during the same months between different stats as this might reveal interesting details about travel trends.
