Chinese Tourists

13-message98-02Recently, the number of Chinese tourists who visit Japan shows no signs of increasing. More than 200,000 people visited Japan from China in July 2012, before the bilateral dispute over the Senkaku Islands worsened. But after the relationship between China and Japan became bad, the monthly number plummeted below 60,000 in November and December. On the other hand, the number of Chinese tourists who visit America is increasing year by year. Tourism in America said “Chinese tourists are like walking wallet”. 110 million Chinese tourists visited America last year. On average, they spend $1,200 on shopping a person. More than half Chinese tourists say “the aim of going to America is to go shopping” so they don’t worry about a hotel and restaurant. Many expensive shops in America make a profit due to them. However, the attitude of them is a big problem. For example, some people break into the line and don’t flush a toilet. People in other country have bad image because of those Chinese tourists. They need to know common sense before going to other country.
