Chinese travelers report robust summer overseas trips

August 08, 2019


Abstract : Chinese tourists' passion for overseas destinations remained high during the summer as increasingly affluent consumers tend to enjoy exotic vacations, an industrial report showed.

BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Chinese tourists' passion for overseas destinations remained high during the summer as increasingly affluent consumers tend to enjoy exotic vacations, an industrial report showed.

The number of overseas travelers saw a year-on-year gain of over 30 percent since July, covering some 124 destinations, according to the country's largest online travel agency Ctrip, citing its platform data.

Total outbound trips might top 30 million in July and August, with popular destinations including Thailand, Japan, Vietnam and Russia, the report showed.

The robust overseas trips, despite short-term exchange rate fluctuations, echoed domestic economy's steady expansion, increases of per capita disposable income, improving transport connectivity and supportive visa policies and services, according to Peng Liang, chief researcher with Ctrip's tourism big data lab.

The China Tourism Academy estimated that about 81.29 million overseas trips were made during the first half of this year, up 14 percent year on year and much faster than domestic tourism growth.
