Greece is embracing more young Chinese travelers who want to experience its unique scenery and romantic culture, travel agencies said.

Wang Wenwen, a public relations employee at Beijing-based travel agency Qunar, said her company has seen continuous growth in recent years of people wanting to travel to Greece, especially among the younger generations.

"So far this year, the number of travelers bound for Greece has risen by 8.3 percent compared with the previous year, and it is up 66 percent compared with 2016," Wang said. "In the past five years, 36 percent of the tour packages to Greece on our platform were purchased by travelers under 30."

She said the increasing number of nonstop flights between China and Greece was one of the driving factors behind the travel boom.
