The Philippines: Chinese tourists power visitor arrivals
The first four months of 2018 saw foreign visitor arrivals in the Philippines grow by 12.35 percent to 2.64 million.
 
Department of Tourism (DOT) of The Philippines data showed the increase could be attributed to the dramatic 52.65-percent growth in the number of tourists from mainland China.
 
DOT Spokesman and Undersecretary for Tourism Development Planning Benito C. Bengzon Jr. described the arrivals from January to April as “very respectable, with the increase being above the curve of the growth in tourism in Asia [6 percent] and around the world [4 percent].”
 
He added, “China is now the second-biggest market, recording a growth rate of 52.65 percent in the first four months of the year. We’re also seeing very strong growth in our other core markets. With the exception of Taiwan, all other markets are growing steadily. This has helped contribute to the overall rise in tourist arrivals.”
