Watch: Chinese Tourists Visiting Hungary Again, Confirms Tourism Agency
Chinese tourist groups are returning to Hungary and will help restore the country’s tourism to levels in and prior to 2019, a Hungarian Tourist Agency (MTÜ) official said.

The first official group of Chinese tourists since the outbreak of the pandemic arrived in Budapest at Ferenc Liszt International Airport on a direct Air China flight from Chongqing, Zsófia Jakab, the agency’s deputy director general for marketing and communications, said in a statement.

A small group of 17 people arrived in Budapest, and further groups are expected, with 36,000 Chinese tourists expected this year, based on pre-bookings, Jakab said.

Chinese tourist groups are now spending 8-10 days in Hungary as against 2-3 days earlier.

As well as Budapest, they are likely to visit Debrecen, the Hévíz spa resort and areas around Lake Balaton, she noted.

The agency is launching a Chinese roadshow in mid-April, Jakab added.
