MANILA Diogo Jota Atletico Madrid Jersey , Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- More Chinese tourists had visited the Philippines during the first half of 2017, the Philippine government record showed on Saturday.

From January to July this year, the Department of Tourism (DOT) said that the number of Chinese nationals who visited the Philippines totaled 454,962, compared to the 340,958 recorded in the same period last year Nicolas Gaitan Atletico Madrid Jersey , or an increase of 33.44 percent.

The visit of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to China in October last year paved the way for the uptick in Chinese arrivals to the Philippines, according to the DOT records.

Philippine Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo said in a statement this week that the Philippines expects more Chinese arrivals this year with the implementation of the visa upon arrival (VUA) program.

Teo lauded the approval of the Department of Justice (DOJ) of its long-standing VUA proposal, saying the program would ease the visa rules and procedures for Chinese tourists and investors into the country.

"We also believe this will serve as an incentive to Chinese guests who may be prospective investors wanting to prove that the country is not only a safe haven for tourists but also a lucrative business location as well," Teo said.

She said the granting VUA to Chinese visitors "will only help keep the momentum of massive influx of Chinese tourists in to the country."

"In welcoming our Chinese visitors with open arms, we also share the enthusiasm of DOJ, through the Bureau of Immigration Yannick Carrasco Atletico Madrid Jersey , to foster improved bilateral relations with Beijing," Teo said.

At present, DOT records show that China is the Philippines's third highest sources of foreign arrivals, after South Korea and the United States.

Earlier this week, the DOJ issued a circular granting VUA to Chinese citizens in an apparent move to lure more Chinese tourists and investors to visit the Philippines.

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) said in a statement that qualified Chinese nationals can soon avail of the VUA privilege.

It said the program applies to Chinese nationals who are members of tour groups organized by DOT-accredited tour operators, investors endorsed by local and foreign chamber of commerce Angel Correa Atletico Madrid Jersey , the Board on Investment, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry or the Philippine Retirement Authority, and delegates to sports competitions, delegates to conventions, exhibitions and symposia.

The BI said Chinese nationals should file their applications at least 10 working days before they arrive in the Philippines.

For this year, the Philippines is expecting Chinese tourist arrivals to hit the 1 million mark.

There's something instinctual in human beings that causes us to be fascinated by caves and caverns. In the days when being eaten by a bear at 25 was considered having "had a pretty good run" Augusto Fernandez Atletico Madrid Jersey , a good cave was the equivalent of a 3 bedroom in the suburbs with a fenced in yard and a 2-car garage. Perhaps that ancestral memory is what makes Carter Caves State Resort Park so appealing. Or maybe they're just cool.

Carter Caves is located 30 miles west of Ashland, Kentucky. It is home to more than 20 spectacular caverns. These subterranean wonders sprawl beneath the forested Appalachian hills, and can be explored via a number of lighted and unlighted cave tours. A small fee is charged for tours to aid in the park's upkeep. Special tours for beginning and experienced spelunkers are also available (schedule ahead).

Among the most impressive caves is Cascade Cave, with its exceptionally beautiful underground waterfall (which towers over 30 feet high), X Cave (named for the shape of its passages), which is noted for its many astounding rock formations Kevin Gameiro Atletico Madrid Jersey , and Saltpeter Cave, a spot rich in early Kentucky history. The largest cave in the park is Bat Cave. This huge cavern is the winter home of thousands of rare bats, and as such is toured only during the summer.

Carter Caves State Resort Park has plenty of fun to offer visitors aboveground as well. Guests can hike along 20 miles of wooded nature trails and enjoy great Kentucky scenery; the trails range from easy to difficult levels, so there's something for hikers of every age and ability.

Boating enthusiasts can take a relaxing canoe trip down Tygart's Creek. Anglers will be thrilled by the opportunities at Carter Caves Lake, Kentucky's only trophy bass lake, which is home to bluegill Saul Niguez Atletico Madrid Jersey , catfish, and crappie in addition to largemouth bass.

Golfers are invited to test their skills on the resort's gorgeous 9-hole regulation golf course, then enjoy a break at its fully-equipped pro shop, where they can get rental riding carts, pull carts, clubs and more (the course is open year-round Sime Vrsaljko Atletico Madrid Jersey , weather permitting).

Guests who want to spend more than a few hours at Carter Caves State Resort Park have lots of excellent lodging choices. Lewis Caveland Lodge is an attractive fieldstone lodge that offers 28 rooms with full amenities.
