TAIPEI, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- A 37-year-old housewife from the Republic of Korea (ROK) arrived Wednesday at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, making Taiwan see record high six million inbound visitors in 2011.

Kim Heek Yung, who traveled with four of her family members, took a flight from Seoul to Taipei at midday.

Hailing it a new milestone for the island tourism, Taiwan's tourism department gave a commemorative plaque and souvenirs to the ROK tourist.

Taiwan had five million arrivals from overseas in 2010, mainly from the Chinese mainland which has become the island's largest source of tourists over the past three years.

More than 1.6 million Chinese mainland tourists visited Taiwan from January to November this year, statistics showed.
