China inbound tourism income down in Jan.

Statistics from the China National Tourism Administration show that China's inbound tourism declined overall in January this year due to the global financial crisis.

 

According to CNTA's data, in January 2009, China received 10.3319 million inbound tourists, which was a decrease of 4.42% compared with the same period of 2008. Of these 3.9244 million were tourists who stayed overnight in China, down 10.82% over the same period of last year. In addition the country's inbound tourism income declined by 18.99% and dropped to USD2.769 billion.

 

It is understood that affected by the global economic depression, China's inbound, outbound and domestic travel markets are all in a weak state this year.
