September 9, 2014

SINGAPORE, 9 September 2014: Singapore’s tourist arrivals for the first half of 2014 hit 7.5 million trips, with 1.2 million of them coming in the month of June alone, but tourism receipts grew by 5%. But it represented a dip of 2.8% year-on-year, due mainly to a decline in Chinese visitor arrivals that stay for one day or less. Excluding China, visitor arrivals from the other markets there was a growth of 2.3% over the same six-month period. In the first half of 2014, the number of Chinese visitors fell 30% year-on-year, following the implementation of the new China Tourism Law[1] in October 2013.
