total of 25 million came from Greater China, including the mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The number of international visitors reached 3 million, up by 2.2 % over the previous year.

The majority of international visitors came from South Korea, accounting for 400,000 arrivals, up by 20.2 %, but it was visitors from the United States, the United Kingdom and New Zealand that stayed the longest.
