Abstract
:

Analyses of the social and economic characteristics of Hong Kong residents making personal travel to the mainland of China (the Mainland) were first introduced in a feature article in the May 2002 issue of the Digest. Updates of the analyses are provided annually.
In 2011, Hong Kong residents made a total of 48.5 million personal trips to the Mainland. Personal travel covers travel in package tour mode and non-package tour mode for purposes such as holiday-making, visits to friends and relatives, and attending recreational and cultural programmes.
Analysed by sex, the proportion of personal trips made by males (54%) was higher. Analysed by age, the highest proportion of personal trips was made by residents in the age group 50-59 (24%).
Among the trips in respect of personal travel by Hong Kong residents to the Mainland, 26.7 million person-trips were made by employed persons. Of this, the highest proportion was made by residents working in the import/export, wholesale and retail trades, and accommodation and food service (28%).
Statistics on consumption expenditure of Hong Kong residents making personal travel to the mainland of China were published in a feature article in the July 2012 issue of this Digest. The article also provides analyses of the latest trend on consumption expenditure of personal travel by destination, travel by package and non-package mode, and by same-day and overnight trips.
