Mr. Francis Daodu, the Chief Executive Officer, 1860 Travels, has explained that Tours2china, a new initiative planned to endorse in-bound and out-bound travel between Nigeria and China, will perk up tourism.
Tours2china is a newly introduced brand which provides a group of five Nigerians, interested to travel together, a simple opportunity to get group visa which provides them a chance to tour different Chinese cities and do business there at the same time, according to Francis.
He explained that it was designed by a Chinese travel agency, Bravo International Travel Tours, and an indigenous travel agency, 1860 Travels.
Daodu informed the journalists that the exchange of culture between Nigeria and China was a thing that had to happen through the platform, thus helping in developing all facets.
He said, “We are going to be experiencing both out-bound and in-bound travel. So, it is not just going to be Nigerians going to China. This brand has created a platform for Chinese to visit Africa generally and Nigeria specifically.”
“There is no partnership that leaves out its people. What this is going to achieve is the exchange of culture. This is the best of cultural exchange between China and Nigeria. During the Yuletide period, we will be expecting quite a lot of Chinese to visit Nigeria.”
He, nonetheless, observed that a refundable fee would be charged in order to prevent absconding.
“We don’t want this platform to abruptly come to an end in the name of absconding. It is expected that this will be a legitimate means for those who want to travel to China for leisure or personal business,” Daodu said.
He mentioned that the brand had put together a package for those who also wished to travel to China for personal reasons.
