However, the total number from this region declined slightly year-on-year (around 1%), to 2.6 million visitors.
On the other hand, visitors from the Greater China region showed growth, going up 3.2% year-on-year to 1.9 million.
Other markets showing strong growth was the Americas - which include USA and Canada – which grew 8% year-on-year to 404,988 visitors in the five months.
