For Chinese visitors, Australia and the Gold Coast are favorite picks

Published on : Wednesday, July 26, 2017

AustraliaFor the Chinese visitors, Australia and the Gold Coast remain their fourth favorite destination. Australia sits fourth behind Japan, Thailand and the United States while the Gold Coast rated the third most popular destination in Australia after Sydney and Melbourne.

 
“The changing preferences of Chinese tourists to experience nature also helps Australia to better capture an increasing share of Chinese tourism,” a survey of outbound Chinese tourists said.

 
A major reason behind Australia jumping up the list is the new 10-year, frequent-traveller visas for Chinese into Australia.

 
In the next 10 years, Chinese outbound travellers are expected to double to 200 million and if all Chinese travellers who wanted to visit Australia did so, the country’s infrastructure was “unlikely to support such growth”.

 
Almost 300,000 Chinese last year visited the Gold Coast which gets 27 per cent of all Chinese tourists into Australia.
