China now world's third-largest tourist spot

China now world's third-largest tourist spot

BEIJING - CHINA has overtaken Spain on the list of the world's top tourism destinations, becoming the third-largest attraction, a senior tourism official said over the weekend.

Mr Man Hongwei, director of the international coordination department at the China National Tourism Administration, said at a press conference that the number of international arrivals staying at least one night reached 55.66 million last year, up 9.4 per cent on 2009.

China's appearance in the top three was its first. It follows France, which had 78.95 million arrivals, and the United States, which had 60.88 million, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization.

The spending by outbound Chinese tourists ranked fourth-largest worldwide last year. The number of outbound travelers hit 57.39 million in 2010, which was up 20.4 per cent year-on-year.

The industry's total revenue maintained an annual average growth of 15 per cent during the past five years, he said.

Mr Xu Daoming, general manager of the marketing department at the China Travel Service, said his company saw robust growth in inbound tourism last year.

Do not go to the biggest city! If you know some people in China, they can help you to travel more beautiful small city.
