Why Chinese outbound tourism?

China is the biggest tourism source market in the world. 62 million Chinese crossed the border in the first half of 2015. Chinese outbound travellers move from sightseeing to experience, from brands to lifestyle. They can be attracted to new products, new places, new activities, new times of the year, bringing not only more, but a different kind of business – if they feel welcome and offered products according to their specific needs and expectations.
