MANILA, Philippines -The Philippine tourism industry is expected to take a hit, as Chinese travel agents suspend tour packages to the Philippines. 

China is the fourth largest source of tourist arrivals to the Philippines, and the fastest-growing market.  In the first quarter, there was a 77% surge in Chinese tourist arrivals to 96,455.

However, tourism officials believe tourists from other top markets will offset the loss of Chinese tourists.
