Span­ish tourist sites in­creas­ingly at­trac­tive

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

Spain is tak­ing ad­van­tage of a rapid growth in Chi­nese ar­rivals as trav­el­ers from China be­come more so­phis­ti­cated and in­de­pen­dent, seek­ing out new ex­pe­ri­ences in Eu­ro­pean des­ti­na­tions. Last year, Spain saw a record 514,000 Chi­nese tourists visit the coun­try, a surge of more than 290 per­cent com­pared with five years ear­lier, ac­cord­ing to the China Out­bound Tourism Re­search In­sti­tute, which has branches in Bei­jing and Ham­burg, Ger­many. Av­er­age per capita ex­pen­di­ture last year by Chi­nese vis­i­tors stood at 946 eu­ros ($1,067), mak­ing them the big­gest spenders among all na­tion­al­i­ties, ac­cord­ing to the in­sti­tute.
