Hungary tourism sector racks up awards from China

Hungary's tourism sector has received five professional awards from China, one of the top sources of tourists in the country, the Hungarian Tourism Agency (MTU) said on Monday.

China’s National Geographic Traveler has recognised Hungary as a “gold-tier” Quality Destination, while the Chinese edition of The Voyage Magazine has chosen Hungary as the New Emerging Destination of the Year, MTU said in a statement.

Meanwhile, MTU finished in the top three in the best regional innovations category of China’s National Tourism News competition, and Hungary was recognised among the top five study trip destinations.

Also, Tongcheng Travel, one of China’s leading booking services, acknowledged Chinese-Hungarian tourism partnerships with the Best Partner of 2023 title, MTU said.

The number of Chinese tourists arriving in Hungary quadrupled last year compared with 2022, MTU said, adding that tourism from China is expected to grow further this year.
