Hong Kong's May Visitors Reach New Heights

May was a month for Hong Kong's record books as the number of visitor arrivals rose by 38.9 percent year-on-year. This brought the number to a whopping 2,815,295. Combine that with the rest of 2010's numbers and Hong Kong has seen 14,236,294 visitors since January— a 19.9 percent increase from the same period last year.

The strongest increase came from short-haul markets, including South and Southeast Asia— an increase of 48.5 percent. This can be attributed to the appreciation of the yen and won as well as the resumption of flights to their level pre-2009 financial woes. The Americas saw a 16.7 percent increase, returning their numbers back to pre-crisis level.
