A surge in visitors from China has sparked a significant lift in tourist arrivals in the Northern Marianas during October.

The Marianas Visitors Authority says numbers were up 12 percent on the same month the previous year.

That is more than 35 thousand tourists and while numbers from the traditionally main market of Japan continued to fall, arrivals from China were up by 55 percent.
