China’s wealthy look­ing for unique travel ex­pe­ri­ences

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

What do wealthy Chi­nese trav­el­ers want?

Small-and medium-sized cruise ships, high-end ho­tels and ex­clu­sive Chi­nese lan­guage tour ser­vices and driv­ers, says a re­port by HH­travel, a lux­ury brand un­der China’s big­gest on­line travel agency Ctrip, and Palm You, a tourism con­sul­tant based in Shang­hai.

More than 90 per­cent of the wealthy sur­veyed ex­pressed de­sire to travel to po­lar re­gions and the United States, the re­port says. North­ern Europe, Canada, Aus­tralia, South­east Asia, Africa, Rus­sia, Ja­pan’s Hokkaido and the Mal­dives are also on their lists.

Chi­nese trav­el­ers have over­taken Aus­tralia to be­come the sec­ond-big­gest group to visit the Antarc­tic, and their num­bers have grown nearly 40 times over the past decade. The fig­ure is ex­pected to cross 5,000 this year. (Photo 4)
