Trav­el­ers crave the ad­ven­ture of their life­time

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS - By SHI JING

Ag­ing Chi­nese lux­ury trav­el­ers with leisure time on their hands are will­ing to ex­plore some less-vis­ited parts of the world.

Their pas­sion for South Amer­ica has been ris­ing this year since the Rio Olympics, with the num­ber of trip book­ings made through tour or­ga­nizer HH Travel in­creas­ing by 50 per­cent.

South Amer­ica has been a pop­u­lar va­ca­tion des­ti­na­tion among Europe and North Amer­ica’s wealthy. So, world-class lux­ury ho­tels are not dif­fi­cult to find in the re­gion. More im­por­tantly, for some ex­pe­ri­enced trav­el­ers who have been to more than 20 coun­tries and re­gions, South Amer­ica is in­creas­ingly at­trac­tive.

Some more ad­ven­tur­ous trav­el­ers have al­ready made their foot­prints on African soil.

Ac­cord­ing to HH Travel, Chi­nese lux­ury trav­el­ers are in­creas­ingly show­ing greater in­ter­est in the wilder ar­eas of the African con­ti­nent. Watch­ing the Great Wilde­beest Mi­gra­tion, liv­ing in ho­tels sur­rounded by wild an­i­mals such as gi­raffes and ele­phants or with a view of Mount Kil­i­man­jaro will cre­ate life­time mem­o­ries for tourists.

When we don’t have any spe­cial plans, we will travel around China ...” Liu Yue, an avid trav­eler and a re­tiree
