The total number of visitors reached over 326,000. Meanwhile, the average length of stay stood at 4.22 days, representing a 55.9% decline YoY. 

“This is a good indication of increased interest from Chinese travellers in visiting Singapore following the implementation of mutual visa-free travel, and also shows that they are willing to spend more to do so. These are good signs for Singapore tourism as not only are visitor numbers going up, the average expenditure per traveller is also rising. This supports what the STB had projected earlier this year - that while visitor figures may not reach 2019 levels, tourism receipts are likely to come close to matching them,” Edmund Ong, General Manager of Trip.com Singapore said.
