Abstract

In 2014 the number of international visitors to Korea stood at a record 14.2 million, an increase of 16.6% compared with 12.2 million in 2013. As inbound tourism has increased, the contribution of tourism to the development of the national economy has also gradually expanded. China is the most important inbound market for Korea, accounting for 6.1 million visitors, followed by Japan with 2.3 million visitors. The average expenditure of foreign tourists visiting Korea in 2014 was USD 1 606 per person. Expenditure of tourists from the Middle East exceeds USD 3 000 per person. Although the expenditure of Chinese tourists is lower at USD 2 095, the greater number of visitors makes China the most attractive market in economic terms. Japanese tourists have the lowest level of expenditure, at USD 999.
