    Abstract

    Politically, Hong Kong is part of the People's Republic of China. However, Mainland Chinese vacation visitors coming to Hong Kong are restricted by immigration regulations. The introduction of the Individual Visitor Scheme (IVS) and multiple visa policies has significantly increased the number of leisure visitors to Hong Kong from China due to increased access. This increase in visitors has resulted in noticeable social impacts including increased conflicts between Mainland Chinese visitors and local residents in Hong Kong. This paper examines Mainland Chinese leisure visitors
