China's booming tourism market has helped foster new career opportunities as people's travel demands upgrade, the People's Daily overseas edition reported earlier this week.

New jobs such as travel video creator, private travel planner and tour guide that can be filled online are picking up popularity among freelancers, some of whom might not have a travel work background, according to the newspaper.
