Abstract

The total number of foreign inbound tourists in 2008 was 6.89 million, an increase of 6.9% compared to the previous year. The number of outbound tourists was 12.0 million, a decrease of 10%. The decrease is believed to be due to the economic recession and a high exchange rate, which led to an overall decrease in international travel. Of the total foreign inbound tourists in 2008, travellers from Japan comprised the highest percentage at 34.5%, followed by those from China at 16.6%, from the US at 8.9%, and from Taiwan at 4.6%.
