The Philippines’ Department of Tourism said that China is now the second largest tourist source for Philippines.

 

 

According to the Philippines Tourism Board, the Southeast Asian country received a total number of 968,000 Chinese visitors last year, which is an increase of 43.3 percent compared to 2016.

 

 

South Korea topped the list with 1.6 million visitors in 2017, while the US (957,000) and Japan (584,000) were third and the fourth after China.

 

 

Wanda Corazon Teo, the secretary of the Philippines Tourism Board, stated that the Philippines will continue to welcome more Chinese people to the country, as the two nations have improved their relationship since President Rodrigo Duterte paid a state visit to China in October 2016.

 

 

To attract more Chinese visitors, the government of Philippines introduced a ‘Visa on arrival’ policy last August for Chinese tour groups, business people and conference delegates.

 

As an archipelago, Philippines are consisting of more than 7,000 islands. This island is renowned for its numerous beaches, caves and other rock formations.
