ASEAN Arrivals Increasingly Chinese

Reinhard Hohler, Chiang Mai


 According to the latest PATA news, destinations in the ASEAN bloc remain remarkably popular for Chinese visitors. With a year-on-year 27% growth rate, arrivals from China accounted over 10% of total international arrivals to ASEAN during the first six months of 2012, making it the second largest source market behind Singapore.
