Turisti cinesi in albergo e nei negozi. Un articolo dell'Economist
Segnalo un articolo sui turisti cinesi pubblicato dall'Economist, dal quale estrapolo qualche riga: "Nick Barton of the InterContinental Hotels Group, whose brands include Holiday Inn, says Chinese consumers are quick to judge a hotel by its welcome and its lobby. They will often photograph the latter for friends at home, according to Roy Graff of ChinaContact, a consultancy: “Travel is about showing off.”
Chinese tourists still rate handbag shopping as more important than bedrooms. “The vast mass are happy with quite cheap hotels,” says David Painter of Kuoni Group Travel Experts, a group-travel operator. He contrasts his company’s Chinese clients, who will stay in two- or three-star hotels, with their older Japanese counterparts, who want three or four stars.
Nel frattempo l'Enit comunica il dato ufficiale dei visti in Cina per l'Italia (2012): 288 mila. Il dato parla da solo.
