China Jan-Sept tourists to S Korea top FY2012 level, Yonhap says

Chinese visitors to South Korea stood at 3.08 million in the first nine months of this year, up from the 2.07 million recorded in the same period last year and beating the visitor numbers from all other nations, Yonhap news agency reported Tuesday, citing South Korea’s Ministry of Justice. The Chinese visitor number in the nine months was in fact more than 2012 full-year figure of 2.73 million for arrivals from that country, the report said. In contrast, Japanese tourists visiting South Korea in the period were down 26 percent from a year earlier to 2.03 million, it said.
