The Challenges For Speedy Methods In

According to South Korea’s Ministry of Justice, arrivals in March reached 428,000—the first time Chinese arrivals crossed the 400,000-barrier since February 2017. While it’s easy to focus on the percentage growth (16.5 percent over February, 13 percent year-over-year), the feat is actually less impressive than it seems, and should not be understood as a thawing of the now one-year-old ban on Chinese group travel to South Korea. At best, the growing number of Chinese arrivals South Korea received last month could be seen as evidence for a relatively strong growth of Chinese independent travel to South Korea. Anything other than growth would have been a huge disappointment The reason is simple: March 2018 is the first month that is compared to a post-travel ban month in year-over-year terms, hence it’s showing positive growth. Prior months have all been compared to pre-travel ban months when Chinese tourism to South Korea was still booming. In other words, anything other than at least moderately positive YoY growth last month would have been an enormous disappointment. It is also unclear if South Korea’s Ministry of Justice’s figures are calculated differently from those of the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO), which normally is the department to report South Korean tourism statistics. KTO has yet to release its arrival figures for March. In comparison, KTO reported 360,782 Chinese arrivals in March 2017 and 601,671 in the same period 2016. Even though March is far from a return to pre-travel ban levels, it does give South Korean tourism stakeholders reason for optimism.
