What Chinese travellers want may surprise

A new survey has found Chinese travellers want free wifi, smoking rooms and a selection of Chinese teas when checking into hotels.

The US-based Hotels.com survey, as per a report in Travel Weekly, found inbound Chinese travellers spent almost a quarter of their income on tourism.

The most popular destinations in the US for Chinese travellers were Honolulu, New York, Boston, San Francisco and Miami.

Meanwhile in Australia, the number of Chinese visitors has exceeded expectations outlined in the Tourism 2020 strategy launced in 2010.

Chinese inbound visitors to Australia surpassed 1 million in 2015, attributed to the lower dollar.

    1. These findings aren’t really surprising… Wifi has formed part of Chinese expectations for some time, given the reliance on social media platforms to communicate, and with regards to smoking, 68% of Chinese men are estimated to smoke, according to an Oct ’15 report in the Lancet.
