For many tourists, Asian countries present an array of exotic attractions.

 

Boasting more than 550 world heritage sites and almost 250 intangible cultural heritages, Asia is a land of vast tourism resources. Also, the continent lures world travelers with different civilizations, all kinds of exquisite food and wine, and several folk festivals.

 

In recent years, tourism has become a booming industry, bonding Asian countries with frequent people-to-people exchanges.

 

China and other Asian countries and regions are the most important tourist sources and destinations for each other. Since 2000, Asian tourists have accounted for more than 60 percent of China’s inbound travel market.

 

Last year, Chinese people made nearly 50 million outbound trips to Asian countries, while inbound trips by Asian visitors reached about 40 million.

 

Exchanges and cooperation in culture and tourism among Asian countries have promoted people’s understanding, recognition and appreciation of each other’s civilizations effectively.

 

The tourism sector has created hundreds of thousands of job opportunities in Cambodia, accounting for 12.7 percent of the country’s GDP last year, said Thong Khon, Cambodia’s tourism minister.
