Kathmandu – The two-day state visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping that begins on October 12 has added energy and enthusiasm to the tourism sector of Nepal. The visit is expected to increase the number of Chinese as well as tourists from other parts of the world coming to Nepal.

China is the country that sends the highest number of tourists around the globe. According to Nepal Tourism Board, 149 million Chinese tourists visited various countries around the world in 2018. China is also the second country after India that sends the highest number of tourists to Nepal.

In the eight months of 2019, 782,600 tourists have visited Nepal. And of them, 106,050 were Chinese nationals. This is rise by 9.8 percent compared to the same period last year. In 2018, 134,362 Chinese tourists came to Nepal.

The visit after a long gap of 23 years by a Chinese President to Nepal is expected to boost the tourism sector of Nepal. The visit will promote Nepal around the world and will increase tourists not only from China but from various other countries, says CEO of Nepal Tourism Board Dipak Raj Joshi.

Likewise, the goodwill ambassador for the Lumbini Development Trust Bikram Pandekaji says that the visit by the Chinese President was a grand opportunity for tourism promotion in Nepal and would definitely increase significantly the number of Chinese tourists to the country.
