Based on dependable sources of the Hong Kong tourist board, Hong Kong’s five leading inbound tourism source markets were Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and South Korea from January 2019 to December 2020.


With its combination of eastern and western customs, Hong Kong is known as the “shopping paradise,” attracting millions of visitors every year for both shopping and touring. In 2019, Hong Kong witnessed 11.87 million incoming visitors by flights. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Hong Kong saw a sharp drop in 2020.


In Hong Kong, the tourism segment is an important support due to its impact on the economy. The city witnessed a huge worldwide attention before the Covid-19 outbreak, receiving 58.47 million and 65.15 million foreign visitors in 2017 and 2018, respectively.


Nearly a quarter of a million people were involved in the tourism segment, which contributed around 5% of Hong Kong’s GDP in 2018. Considering the significance of tourism, the pandemic not only brought momentous losses in tourism but also created a major negative effect on Hong Kong’s economy, especially on closely related industries like retail, catering and hotel services. Before the pandemic, most domestic and international passengers visited Hong Kong by flight, except those from mainland china, who mainly traveled by land.
