The City of Puerto Princesa will host 187 tourists from the Chinese mainland province of Xiamen in February, as the local government eyes to boost tourist arrivals in the capital.

City Mayor Lucilo Bayron said the visitors will be arriving on a chartered flight and will tour local attractions for days.

 “It falls under their celebration of Chinese New Year. Probably, we’ll tie up with the Chinese community in here to make their stay worthwhile,” Bayron said.

Last week, Bayron said the Philippine consulate officials invited travel agencies representatives from China to visit Puerto Princesa for a business matching.

 “There were three groups: the two visited Boracay and Bohol, while the other one with the largest number of contingent of travel agency representatives came over here,” he said.

Bayron added that the visit would encourage more chartered flights from China. “Possibly, there would be more flights from China coming up in the future,” he said.

Data from the Department of Tourism show that Chinese placed fourth in the top 20 countries who visited Puerto Princesa in 2015. On one hand, American, Taiwanese and Korean came in first, second and third, respectively.
