Abstract: The objectives of this article are to analyze the historical evolution of tourism development in Hong Kong from 1961 to 1999. Secondary data of international tourist arrivals and tourist receipts are used to identify and analyze travel trends and patterns as well as economic impact. Tourism grew substantially over the past four decades, with visitation numbers and receipts peaking in 1997. Both income and visitor numbers declined as a result of the Asian economic crisis, before recovering during 1999. Short-haul tourists have a dominant position in the market. In particular, Chinese and Taiwanese tourists are gaining significance in terms of number of arrivals and amount of receipts. Tourism currently contributes 6.6% to the Hong Kong GDP.
