Size of Chinese Visitor Market – An Opportunity!
The China Outbound Tourism Research Institute estimates that 18 million Chinese tourists will travel internationally in the first half of the year, followed by 40 million in the second.
It’s worth noting that by 2019 VisitScotland were reporting that China was Scotland’s 5th largest international visitor market by number of visits, 4th largest by expenditure and 3rd largest by number of nights, with Edinburgh being the most popular destination. So with Chinese visitors looking set to make a welcome return to the city in 2023, now is the time to act!
