The following is the [Travel News]: China still No. 1 international tourism source market in 2020 from [FTNnews] recommended by TheTourAttraction.com:
Travelers from Mainland China can be expected to be responsible for more than a million border crossings, with the Special Administrative Region Macau as main destination.
Despite the pandemic, recent research says that China will still be the number one source market for international tourism.
According to COTRI ANALYTICS, the quantitative research part of COTRI China Outbound Tourism Research Institute, China will reclaim its top position in 2020 with 18 million Chinese international trips, most of which however happened in January, representing about 10% of the number for 2019.
Travelers from Mainland China can be expected to be responsible for more than a million border crossings, with the Special Administrative Region Macau as main destination. However, a number of other countries in Asia welcome Chinese visitors again, including Thailand, Laos, Japan, Singapore and others. Chinese citizens within the Schengen region in Europe can also travel between European countries.
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Georg Arlt, CEO of COTRI said, “Obviously China is the ‘tallest within a group of dwarfs’ in this development. In November 2019 more than ten million Chinese travelled abroad and other source markets also sent out millions on international business and leisure trips. However, it is important to notice that the often-cited ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ looks very much like a Chinese lantern.”
