JEJU, March 18 (Korea Bizwire) — Potential Chinese tourists to the southern resort island of Jeju have positive views towards the island’s quarantine policy against the coronavirus, a local think tank said Wednesday.
The Jeju Research Institute conducted a survey of 754 Chinese nationals who gave high marks to Jeju’s counter-pandemic policy with an average score of 4.33 out of 5.
The respondents felt most assured by Jeju’s sanitation quality at accommodation facilities, followed by sanitation at airport facilities, restaurants and cafes, means of transportation, and tourist spots.
The most popular tourist destination among the Chinese respondents was Japan at 25 percent, followed by South Korea (17.1 percent). Natural attractions were the most popular type of tourist destinations.
Between February of last year and the present, there have been 612 cases of COVID-19 infections reported in Jeju, ranking second after the central administrative city of Sejong for the lowest number in the country, with only one death.
