In contrast to this shrinkage, visitor arrivals from the Republic of Korea grew by an average of 31.5 percent each year from 2012 to 2016. Other Asian source markets to Guam, including Philippines, China, Hong Kong SAR and Chinese Taipei, all contributed to the growth of the island’s tourism industry.
