Bouncing back: Hong Kong visitors returning

HONG KONG -- Arrivals in Hong Kong have bounced back after the SARS crisis last year, with 14 million visitors in the first eight months of 2004, on a par with 2002 levels, according to Selina Chow, chairman of the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

August, in fact, set an all-time monthly record with 2 million arrivals.

The U.S. is Hong Kongs No. 1 long-haul market, and of the Americans who travel there, Chow said travel agents booked some 70%.
