Hungary Welcomes 1st Chinese Tour Group After Pandemic Reopening

Tourism

The first Chinese tour group to visit Hungary since China's post-pandemic reopening was welcomed at Budapest's Ferenc Liszt International on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Hungarian Tourism Agency deputy-CEO Zsófia Jakab greeted the group who arrived on an Air China flight from Chongqing. The group will spend 8-10 days in Hungary, "taking in the whole country" by visiting places such as Hévíz and Lake Balaton, and the Pecs-Villany region, as well as the capital, she said.

The Hungarian Tourism Agency will launch a roadshow in China in mid-April to promote 8- to 10-day package tours in the country, she added.

Last year, 24,000 Chinese travelers visited Hungary, spending 107,000 guest nights. Since China's re-opening, tourists from the country have booked 36,000 guest nights in Hungary.

Jakab said organized Chinese tours have been "sorely missed" in the tourism sector for the past three years. Chinese tour groups can help Hungary's tourism sector return to pre-pandemic levels even faster, she added.
