Bali has become one of the most popular destinations for the Chinese tourists who have been visiting this region in large numbers to spend their Chinese New Year vacation that commenced on 27th January and will continue till 2nd February. The other two favored locales are Jeju and Phuket.
These three places are the most preferred. This is due to the fact that tourists can access them through cruise ships easily.
Also, they offer tropical island leisure or fun in the snow.
The director of Beijing Tourism Academy named Zhang Lingyun said that going for cruises is a brand new trend for the Chinese tourists, particularly those who go for vacations there, along with their families.
