Written by Yvy Cheng
With a long history, China boasts vast territory, rich historic sites, unique landscape, numerous nationalities and diversified culture. At present, the quantity of sites in China that have been listed in the Directory of World Cultural and Natural Heritage ranks the 3rd place all over the world, and China becomes the 4th inbound tourism country and the largest domestic tourism market all over the world and the largest outbound tourism market in Asia.

Chinese have a passion for traveling, and then rich and varied tourist programs are developed. The rapid development of economy and gradual improvement of living standard provide the foundation for tourism; the continuous improvement of traffic and tourist facilities, the better and better protection and remedy of cultural relics and the promotion of more new attractions and tourist programs provide tourist space for people.

Nowadays, the development of ecological, cultural, scientific & educational and industrial & agricultural and other theme tourism is accelerated; self-driving tourism, yacht and cruiser, camping & caravan, tourism website, tourism media, on line transaction and other new business forms for tourism are emerging; ocean, forest and cruise tourism, sports & fitness, convention & exhibition, cultural experience and other tourist programs are springing up; national festivals, hot spring health care, fishing, skiing and sand boarding, village tourism, folk custom tourism and other leisure holiday tourism are flourishing.

Going outside, integrating into the nature and spending vacation at leisure become the living factors of Chinese people to enjoy their lives. The former single market features foreigners coming to China for tourism has become three markets coexistence together with Chinese people’s domestic and outbound tourism.

At present, the Chinese government is launching a project for village tourism, i.e. to promote 100 counties, 1,000 towns and 10,000 villages with their local characteristics. Tourism industry becomes one of the pillar industries for China’s economic development, which brings about the growing up of relatively poor regions that have rich original ecological resources.

China’s proposed goal for tourism is: to maintain an average growth rate of 10.4% during next 10 year, among which the personal tourism consumption will keep an average growth rate of 9.8%. China will become the largest outbound tourism destination country and the 4th customer resource exporting country all over the world
