The number of foreign tourists visiting South Korea this year is expected to top the landmark 10 million later this week for the first time on the back of rising Chinese and Japanese tourists, government data showed Sunday.
A total of 8.44 million foreign tourists visited South Korea between January and September, up 19 percent from a year earlier, according to the data compiled by the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO). The number will likely reach 10 million on Wednesday as some 1 million was added to the tally in October.
