Chinese tourists are top spenders in Singapore

The Merlion in Merlion Park, Singapore.
Singapore is seeing Chinese visitors in record numbers as it welcomed 1.24 million Chinese visitors for the first half of last year, a hefty 27% rise from the same period the previous year.
For the first time, the Chinese emerged as the biggest spenders, overtaking Indonesian visitors.
Singapore Tourism Board figures show that Chinese visitors spent almost 1.52 billion Singapore dollars (US$1.2 billion) in the first half of last year, 3% more than Indonesians. This excludes what they spent on sightseeing and entertainment.
Just four years ago, Indonesian visitors chalked up nearly US$1 billion more in tourism receipts than Chinese visitors. Indonesians had been the biggest-spending visitors since 2007.
