Taipei, May 1 (CNA) Some 5,100 Chinese group tourists visited Taiwan Friday, the first day of China’s three-day Labor Day weekend, while still more are expected later in the month, a peak time for cross-strait travel.
Tourism Bureau data showed that about 5,100 Chinese tourists are expected to visit Taiwan each day May 2-4, with 6,000 tourists daily May 5-8.
The momentum could continue at least through late May as many middle-aged or senior Chinese tourists take the opportunity to travel in warm weather, officials said. [FULL STORY]
