Nearly 4.4 million international nationals visited Taiwan in 2009, a record number that exceeded the government target of 4.1 million by 14.3%. According to a Taiwan News report, citing data from the country’s Tourism Bureau, 52.3% of the total came to Taiwan for tourism purposes - a year-on-year increase of 29.4%. Japan remained the largest source of arrivals, but Chinese arrivals climbed from 606,000 in 2008 to over 972,000 last year after the liberalisation of cross-strait tourism.
