These tourists visited Asan Oeam Village and Hyundai Motors Asan Plant as part of the two-day trip.

The province is expecting to have 1,000 Chinese group tourists this month and 2,000 more by end of the year.

"We have been facing challenges in attracting Chinese tourists due to conflicts because of THAAD allocation, but thanks to the peaceful situation in the Korean Peninsula as well as the eased regulation, we are achieving our goals," said Cho Han-yeong, Director General of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Provincial Office. "We will make efforts to attract more overseas group tourists by providing incentives to travel agencies and promoting on-line and off-line PR activities."

Considering that the province doesn't have enough shopping malls for tourists, it is planning to revitalize regional economy by operating special product markets in tourist sites through consultation with cities and counties.
