During the weeklong Chinese lunar new year holidays, more than 1.06 million tourists from the mainland visited Hong Kong, up 14.5 percent year-on-year.

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has seen a rebound in tourist visits from the Chinese mainland, which has contributed to the recovery of the local tourism industry.

During the weeklong Chinese lunar new year holidays, more than 1.06 million tourists from the mainland visited Hong Kong, up 14.5 percent year-on-year, local news site wenweipo.com reported on Thursday, citing data from the local immigration department.

A large number of tourists from the mainland have been lining up in some of the most congested shopping districts such as Mong Kok and Causeway Bay, and the total revenue from new year markets is expected to have increased by 5 percent year-on-year in 2018, thanks partly to the rise of middle-class consumers in the mainland.

Also, the Macao Special Administrative Region recorded a year-on-year increase of 16.8 percent in the number of tourists from the mainland during the holidays.
