2016 THE FUTURE OF CHINESE INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
Encouraged by rising disposable incomes, growing direct flight lines, and an extended period of appreciating RMB, the Chinese have became the world's most prolific travelers. In 2014, China outpaced the United States for most outbound travelers and the most international travel spending in the world with a record $164.8 billion spent. In 2015, Chinese travelers made roughly 133 million foreign trips and spent more than $200 billion on tourism related activities. That number is expected to reach a whopping $422 billion by the year 2020 - that's roughly equivalent to the GDPs of developed countries like Portugal and Ireland combined.
Those numbers are staggering, and give us insight into the future international travel trends of the most lucrative population in the world.
