Coca-Cola London Eye celebrates Chinese New YearHalf a billion Chinese traveled either home or foreign countries during their holiday period which started from 38th January. More than 30,000 visitors are being expected to arrive at New Zealand this year. It’s being considered that as the numbers of Chinese tourists have slowed down a bit this year, people are more interested to travel via rental cars or in group tours.

Tourism NZ had organized a campaign to educate travelers about NZ road rules and various driving conditions and attract more travelers who love to travel via road. To quote Rene de Monchy, Tourism NZ spokesperson, “We’ve really highlighted to Chinese visitors, as well as other visitors from other markets, the differences in the roads in New Zealand and what they need to be aware of. Also, what we’ve just launched this Chinese New Year, is using more Chinese social media… targeting visitors once they arrive in this country’’.

To quote Steve Greally, National manager of road policing Superintendent, “Police are continuing to maintain a strong presence on main travel routes during the Chinese New Year period, just as we do for other peak holiday times through the year and are well prepared for the expected increase in visitor numbers. This includes visitors from a wide range of overseas countries and other parts of New Zealand, who may be unfamiliar with local roads.”
