“Chinese travellers are now more complicated than they were in previous years; holiday operators/destinations therefore need to identify and map out the diverse needs and wants of Chinese travellers from different demographics and typologies in order to be able to offer them customised holiday products and services.”
– Lui Meng Chow, Research Analyst
Some questions answered in this report include:
The remarkable change in Chinese consumers’ holiday lifestyles and tourism growth is largely due to the relaxation of the government’s previous restrictions on outbound travel, the introduction of government policies to increase Chinese leisure time and the rise of a Chinese middle class with higher disposable income.
Despite the slowdown in overall GDP (Gross Domestic Product) growth in the past two years, Chinese middle class spending does not seem to have been impacted greatly, indeed Chinese consumers are showing a stronger desire than ever before to explore foreign lands and enjoy new experiences. Chinese travellers spent US$102 billion on international tourism in 2012, according to United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO). UNWTO also shows that Chinese tourists spent 30% more when travelling abroad in 2012 than they did in the previous year.
The impact of rising incomes, and changing Chinese spending habits on leisure and holidays have seen the holiday/leisure industry move its focus from providing low-quality group tours to offering customised holiday products and services. Chinese travellers now have more complex wants and needs from their travel, thus holiday operators/destinations will need to take these diverse needs and expectations into account in order to target and tailor their products and services accordingly.
