Senior Chinese tourists are more attracted to Polar Regions

Published on : Thursday, November 30, 2017

indexAs per the reports of thepaper.cn, an increasing number of seniors from China are reportedly planning trips to the Polar Regions.

 

Last year, over 3,944 people from China went to the South Pole which is 40 times the number from the year 2008. In the report it was mentioned that the average age of those exploring the high-cost trips from China is somewhere around 55 years.

 

Observers have further suggested that the polar tour length can be between 15 to 30 days, attracting older Chinese people who have the means.

 

Majority of the Chinese tourism agencies have been promoting polar tourism from the latter half of this year. Nevertheless, the trips aren’t much budget friendly.

 

LY.COM, a Chinese tour provider, calculates the costs for polar tours for upcoming 2018-2019 session will run anywhere from 70,000 rmb to 600,000 rmb.

 

On the other hand, Ctrip is quoting prices around 880,000 rmb, which is the almost the buying price for an average small apartment in certain smaller cities in China.
