Australia most popular destinationFor Chinese tourists, Australia ranked 14th in a key list of well-known destinations at the biggest travelling week of the year, tripping two spots on the same time a year back but developing in the last six months.

Chinese travel agents stated that Australia continued to be an attractive destination for Chinese tourists during the National Day holiday last week. This is the popular time for Chinese tourists to head overseas. The Lunar New Year is China’s yet another big holiday which falls around the beginning of February. However, but Chinese utilize that time to travel domestically and visit their relatives.

As there are signs that Chinese visitors are holding back on lavish international vacations as the economy of the country slows down, travel agents said growth in the Australian market was pretty stable as visitors perceived it as safer than Europe. Also, they were attracted to “new” destinations such as Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania.

Ctrip, the biggest online travel agent of the country found Australia to rank the 14th most popular destination during the week-long holiday recently. Thailand ranked No.1, followed by Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, the United States, Russia, Cambodia and Italy.

The United States, which is waging a trade war with China, dropped five spots in terms of popularity, from fifth a year ago to 10th this time. Also, the data emphasizes the drop in popularity of European countries as a result of security concerns, in favour of cheaper south-east Asian destinations. Thailand is the most popular market for Chinese tourists by far.
