Chinese cities are resuming package tours to Korea after an unofficial boycott last year crippled the cut-price tour group business here. The southwestern city of Chongqing on Monday said it is lifting the ban.
It comes just a week after Wuhan, the sprawling capital of Hubei Province, resumed package tours to Korea.
Relations tentatively improved after President Moon Jae-in's summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing in December last year.
The number of Chinese visitors to Korea passed the 400,000 threshold in March for the first time since February 2017.
