Chinese tourists in AustraliaThe Chinese tourists have arrived. The economic miracle of China has produced the world’s highest spending tourists.

 

And there’s a lot more to come.

 

Chinese travellers spent a record $US165 billion ($A230 billion) abroad in 2014, a 27% increase, according to the World Tourism Organisation.

 

However, in per head of population terms, spending on travel by the Chinese is still very low, just $121 each ($A170). Compare that to the top spending Germans who drop $US1137 ($A1600) each year, just ahead of Australians who spend $US 1114 ($A1564).

 

Australia moved down one place in the rankings into 9th position as travel spending fell by 2% to $US26 billion ($A36 billion).
