Chi­nese trav­el­ers los­ing ap­petite for luxury prod­ucts

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China’s af­flu­ent trav­el­ers, the world’s big­gest force in global luxury spend­ing, pre­fer hav­ing a bite of lo­cal cui­sine rather than snap­ping up the likes of Chanel bags and Rolex watches.

That’s ac­cord­ing to the lat­est data in an Asian luxury travel re­port, re­leased re­cently at the 10th International Luxury Travel Mar­ket exhibition in Shang­hai.

The re­port, which in­ter­viewed more than 5,300 af­flu­ent trav­el­ers across Asia over the past two months, tracked the change in con­sump­tion spend­ing.

The survey found that de­spite the grow­ing de­sire and interest among the in­ter­vie­wees to “travel more lux­u­ri­ously in the near future”, ex­plor­ing lo­cal cuisines in for­eign lands has for the first time over­taken splurges of shopping at outlets.
