From January to August this year, a total of 1,209,312 Chinese tourists visited the Philippines, as per figures from the Department of Tourism (DOT).

 

The DOT said that international visitor arrivals in the Philippines went past the five million mark in August this year, bringing in bright prospects for the tourism industry.

 

The DOT said that inbound foreign guests reached 5,554,950 during January to August this year, marking a 14.08 percent increase from the 4,869,417 tourists witnessed during the same period last year.

 

For the month of August alone, a total of 702,843 foreign tourists arrived in the Philippines, popular for its pristine and powdery white sand beaches. This number is 27.54 percent higher compared to the 551,088 arrivals during August last year.

 

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat expressed appreciation for the support of tourism industry stakeholders in the private sector along with the local government units for implementation of the government’s sustainable development program throughout the country.

 

“This is very encouraging even as we await the completion of the statistics gathered for the month of September,” said Puyat.

 

The Philippines is aiming to reach its target of 8.2 million foreign tourist arrivals this year.
