Hong Kong welcomed 34 million visitors in 2023, with the Chinese mainland remaining its largest source market and accounting for 79 percent of the total figure amid the region's tourism rebound, according to the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) on Saturday. 

Some 27 million travelers from the Chinese mainland made trips to Hong Kong last year, which accounted for 79 percent of the region's total visitors with ideal numbers during the May Day holidays, summer vacation and the National Day holidays in October. 

The figure showcased a steady recovery for Hong Kong's tourism sector. The region received nearly 4 million tourists alone in December 2023. In comparison, Hong Kong received a total of 604,564 visitors in 2022, with 375,130 from the mainland, according to HKTB data.
