China National Holiday to Boost Korea Tourism Updated: 2012-09-24 12:00:00 KST

China National Holiday to Boost Korea Tourism
Korea's tourism industry is expected to get a boost from China's week-long national holiday in October.
The Korea Tourism Organization says over 100-thousand Chinese tourists will visit Korea next week, up over 43 percent from the same period last year.
They are estimated to spend an all-time record of over 200 million U.S. dollars.
The number of Chinese tourists and the amount of money they spend in Korea have been on the up-and-up since 2008.
But this year is expected to be exceptional since the week-long holiday overlaps with the Mid-Autumn Festival, or Chinese thanksgiving.
China's 'Golden Week' holiday will last for one week starting Sunday.
