The number of Chinese mainland visitors to Taiwan reached 2.19 million in 2013, up from 1.97 million in 2012, an official said.
Nearly a quarter of them were individual travelers, said Shao Qiwei, chairman of the Cross-Straits Tourism Communication Association of the Chinese mainland. He was speaking at the opening ceremony of a cross-Strait tourism industry meeting in Nanchang, capital of Jiangxi Province.
