200 million Chinese tourists to bring destinations to maximum capacity by 2021
Chinese tourists have been increasing in double digits since 2010, and they're spending five times as much as the British.
In just a few years, China has leapt up the league table of tourist-generating nations to first place, with more than 135 million international departures in 2016. China's tourists have been increasing in double digits since 2010, and most experts agree that 200 million Chinese will be travelling abroad every year by 2021.
The Chinese are not only travelling abroad in ever greater numbers, they're spending far more money than other countries (five times as much as the British).
The British and the Americans used to set the pace in international travel: their entrepreneurs led the way in investing in new properties and establishing standards and patterns of growth for international holiday resorts.
But Western domination is history. Now, when major tourist destinations devise their development plans for the future, China is top of the list of the nations they want to attract. Cruise lines are falling over themselves to find a product the Chinese like (it's more difficult to find something to their taste than you might think).
