Chinese tourism shows strong growthThe China National Tourism Administration, in one of its reports showed that major overseas tourism destinations are impressed with Chinese outbound tourists who have improved their manners in the past five years.


The survey interviewed 3,650 people from 10 overseas tourism destinations – the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Taiwan – on the image and behaviour of Chinese outbound tourists.


Nearly half of the interviewees said that they have witnessed an improvement in Chinese tourists’ manners in the past five years. Positive response came from Indonesia, France, Singapore, the UK and the US. However, neighbouring countries such as Japan did not, with only 18.9 percent of Japanese interviewees saying they had witnessed an improvement.


China has been the world’s largest outbound tourism market for the past four years but bad behavior has also led to criticism from many overseas tourism destinations.


Liu Simin, the Chinese Society for Future Studies’ vice-president of tourism, said that in addition to tightening government or industry regulations on this issue, it is also necessary to educate people about good manners from a young age, even starting from kindergarten, which would set solid foundations for education on civilized tourism.
