The number of travelers from the Chinese mainland to Taiwan rose during the May Day break and visits to Hong Kong fell.

The tourism authority of Taiwan said 32,000 individual trips were made from the mainland to Taiwan, a 33 percent year-on-year rise. There were 9,864 visitors who were not part of tours. That's more than double compared with the same period last year.

The number of mainland travelers to Hong Kong fell for the first time since the special administrative region opened self-guided tours to mainland residents in 2003.
