Arrivals from East Asia increased 19.4 percent to 45,648 from 38,229 with China leading, while arrivals from South Asia increased 5.3 percent to 79,880 from 75,895.

Tourist arrivals from Australasia increased 18.4 percent to 17,758 from 14,993 led by Australia.

They are not stupid enough to pay idiotic prices for our hotels. Our hotel sector should try to trim their expenses not increase the prices. And government should reduce the minimum rates.
