HONG KONG – The Chinese city of Hong Kong was visited by 110,816 Dutch nationals in 2007. This is an increase of 8.4 percent on 2006.
Moreover, visitors awarded the city a report mark of just above eight, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) announced Wednesday.
The HKTB launched the campaign 'Live it, Love it' in 2007 in an effort to attract more visitors to the metropolis and to promote longer stays in the city.
On the whole the city drew more than 28 million visitors in 2007, an increase of 10 percent from 2006.
Most Dutch visitors to the island city were on holiday, and stayed an average of 3.5 days. The sites most visited by the Dutch in 2007 were Victoria Peak, the Star Ferry, the Peak Tower and Temple Street.
Michael Fley, European director of HKTB, says the Hong Kong dollar is cheap in relation to the euro, and a holiday in Hong Kong is therefore an attractive option.
