China Tourism industry China is a vast land, rich in tourism resources. It comes out in front in the world in scenic spots and historical sites, spectacular landscape, and varied national customs.
With so many attractions, Ever since the Policy of opening and reform was adapted in 1978, the tourism industry in China, thanks to the great importance attached by the governments at various levels, has become a new but most dynamic and potentially strong factor in the tertiary industry. It has been serving as a new growth point in China’s national economy. And in many parts of the country, tourism has been regarded as a pillar, superior or priority industry in bringing up the local economic development. The position of tourism in the national economy continues to be enhanced and upgraded. As China integrates with the global economy, it’s tourist industry is expected to continue to boom in the next five years. It is forecasted that China’s tourism industry still develop with an annual growth rate of about 10 percent. Moreover the sustained growth in China’s gross domestic product is expected to further stimulate the growth of tourism industry, and the number of domestic tourism expected to increase by about 5 percent annually in the next few year. Accordingly the booming tourism industry has played a vital role in increasing consumption, reducing poverty and creating job opportunities. China has experienced several years of powerful domestic economic growth, and while the rate of GDPexpansion is now expected to decline (though still remaining healthy) indications are that the middle classwill continue to grow. This growth is resulting in outbound travel increasing in popularity, as more people have disposable income that can be used for holidays. As such we are forecasting substantial gains in the outbound travel market, with the number of annual…...

Emerging Tourism Markets: India and China

...INTRODUCTION Tourism industry is one of the most profitable industries in many countries (Sinha, 2004). Whenever tourists visit a country, they bring in additional resources to the destination and such resources contribute to the development of the destinations and the country itself. It is therefore no surprise that many countries make tremendous efforts to tap income from the tourism industry (Australian Government, 2004). Among these countries are India and China. In the recent years, there have been major improvements in the tourism industry of the two countries which have restructured their mode of operation in handling tourists by providing high standards of accommodation and levels of service (Bikyamasr, 2012). This essay looks at recent tourism developments and trends that have been happening in India and China and it further looks at the likely future trend of tourism in these two emerging countries. INDIA In India, the development of the tourism industry has been on the rise in the last four years. At the moment, the industry is largest service industry contributing to about 6.3% of GDP and accounting of 8.78% of total jobs (Sinha, 2004). Though the country has not fully developed its tourism industry, further availability of tourism sites and products and adequate human resources could definitely aid this industry to rise to its full potential. According to Seth, Bhat & Sushma (2010), in 2008 the tourism industry in India was at its infant stage. At that......

...Reasons why China is unique: 1. Population: The population of China is 1,321,290,000 and it is the most populated country in planet earth followed by India. 2. Due to this high population the People’s Republic of China is the only country that has introduced the one child policy to control the high amount of births. The policy allows many exceptions: rural families can have a second child if the first child is a girl or is disabled, and ethnic minorities are exempt. 3. China is the great economic success story of the past decade 4. Adapting to its rise will pose a challenge to the political, economic and even moral bases of the current international order. It will have an impact on the security architecture of Asia and the Far East, the so called China Effect. 5. Chinese growth is built on a unique but unsustainable model- impossible high levels of export growth largely driven by assembling half- completed imported goods, state driven capital accumulation and cheap labor with very low productivity, little technical innovation and the absence of an appropriate business culture or legal structure. 6. World’s largest exporter: China's exports rose at an annual rate of 7.9% in 2013, while imports grew 7.3%. 7. In 2012 83 million mainland Chinese spent $102 billion abroad overtaking Americans and Germans -making them the world’s biggest tourism spenders according to UN World Tourism Organization. Reasons why China is unusual: 1. Despite a phenomenal......

...influence the success of the tourism industry. First, there are ways that economic policies a government takes can have a direct impact on tourism.  This type of impact would occur when a government makes policies explicitly aimed at the tourism industry.  For example, if a local government subsidises the building of a resort in a beach town, the tourist industry in that town will, presumably, benefit. Second, there are ways economic policy can indirectly affect tourism.  For example, government monetary policies are most likely not aimed at tourism.  However, if a government's monetary policies cause the exchange rate for its currency to fall, tourism will likely benefit.  This is because the country's currency will become cheaper and vacations in that country will become less expensive for people in other countries.

...Current trends in Tourism -Ragasudha RV 2014 saw 1.1 billion international tourist arrivals according to UNWTO, roughly 5% rise from 2013. Europe accounts to more than half of these arrivals followed by Asia and America. Outbound tourists from China outnumber those from the USA and Germany, and are expected to increase even further. 50% travelled for leisure and recreation, 27% travelled for visiting family or friends, medical or religious reasons and another 15% travelled on business and profession. This shows that Leisure, VFR and Business remain the top three motivations for people to travel. In the luxury travel market, travellers from US, Europe and Japan are the dominant consumers. Continued growth in global GDP, change of leadership in countries like India and meetings like BRICs promise increase in economic performance in foreseeable future. In this backdrop, tourism scene looks promising as countries in Asia and Middle East compete to attract investments and visitors, and Europe and America look to seek partnerships with developing countries. Increase in affluence, disposable income and leisure time fuelled the desire to travel for new experiences. Provisions like Visa on Arrival and Visa Waiver Program enable hassle-free entry and saves time on travel formalities. Stressful professional life also necessitates the motivation to take short breaks by young professionals. Business travellers are often combining leisure element or bring their partners on the......

...Negative Impact Of Tourism On ( Language ) , ( Religion ) And ( Customs And Tradition ) | | | | <Name> | | <Date> | | Introduction Tourism is unarguably one of the most dynamic and developing sectors earning a myriad of countries across the globe millions of dollars in different forms. A number of countries have benefited from infrastructural development, currency inflows, educational and management skills associated with tourism. Citizens from these countries have as well gained from various employment opportunities resulting from economic development of the regions visited by tourists. Some of the highly developed Western nations such as Switzerland, Italy, and Austria have attributed most of its economic and social welfare development to tourism. (Smith, 2006) Currently, it is approximated that tourism contributes to 10% of global income with at least 10% of the world workforce earning their daily bread from the sector. Viewed as ‘manna from heaven’ most analysts perceive tourisms as a way of balancing foreign trade and as a source of foreign exchange with minimal discussion on the negative challenges it’s associated with. The discussion in this paper will mainly focus on the negative challenges of tourism with deep analysis on language, religion, customs and tradition, drawing examples from various countries known as tourist destinations across the globe.

...UNIT# 2: TOURISM THROUGH THE AGES Introduction; Great Empires; The Middle Ages; The Renaissance; The Industrial Revolution and Tourism Today. Objectives of this unit: Recognize the antiquity of human travel over vast distances on both sea and land; Understand how these journeys have evolved from trips that were difficult and often dangerous, to mass travel for millions today. Introduction: People have always traveled, in search of food or animal skins for clothing, or for territorial expansion. Travel in these early days was time-consuming and dangerous. Indeed, our word travel comes from the French word TRAVAIL, which means work, and that is what it was, hard work. Most early travel was on foot, but later donkeys begun to be used. Waterways and seaways also frequently become paths for trade and commerce. 1. EARLY BEGINNINGS (THE GREAT EMPIRES): Organized travel in the West probably began during the great empires of Persians, Assyrians, Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans. This period began several millennia B.C. and continued to several hundred years A.D.1 (or C.E./Common Era). During the empire period, travel developed for military, trade, and government reasons, as well as for communication from the central government to its distant territories. (i) Travel Methods: For overland travel, ordinary people used donkeys or camels, but for military and government purposes, horses were used, along with wagons and chariots. Goods also had to be transported. In Persia between 500 and 400...

Tourism Industry in China

...Between 1949 and 1976, China was closed-off to foreigners with the exception of a selected few. During that time, travel and tourism was for all intents and purposes considered a political activity. Domestic tourism hardly existed and outbound travel was limited almost exclusively to government officials. To Chairman Mao Zedong, leisure travel was considered a capitalistic bourgeois activity and therefore forbidden under Marxian principles. Turning point: Shortly after the Chairman's death, China's most famous economic reformist, Deng Xiaoping, opened up the Middle Kingdom to outsiders. Foreign visitors quickly flocked to this once forbidden destination. Contrary to Maoist ideology, Deng saw the monetary potential in tourism and began to promote it intensely. China quickly developed its own travel industry. Major hospitality and transportation facilities were constructed or renovated. New jobs such as service personnel and professional guides were created, and a National Tourism Association was established. Inbound: - In 1978, an estimated 1.8 million tourists entered the country, with the majority coming from neighboring British Hong Kong, Portuguese Macau, and Taiwan. - By 2000, China welcomed over 10 million new oversea visitors, excluding the aforementioned three locations. Tourists from Japan, South Korea, Russia, and the United States comprised the largest share of that inbound population. - In 2010, China became the third most visited country in the world...

Advancing the Medical Tourism Industry in China

...Advancing the Medical Tourism industry in China Abstract Medical tourism is a lucrative industry but China is losing out in the competition of this challenging industry. The aim of this study is to analyze why China’s medical tourism industry is not performing as well as countries such as India or Thailand, and also to provide insights on how to go about leveraging on certain medical procedures that China have a comparative advantage in performing. This study resulted in two findings. Firstly, there is a lack of hospitals with JCI accreditation which we found out was due to a lack of motivation from public hospitals to do so, and also a lack of transparency in the management of the Chinese hospitals. Secondly, we found that the three medical procedures with the biggest potential to spearhead the success of medical tourism in China are Heart Bypass Surgery, Hip Replacement Surgery and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Keywords: Medical Tourism China JCI Contents Page Chapter 1 Introduction 1 1.1 What is Medical Tourism 1 1.2 Reasons for the popularity of Medical Tourism 2 1.3 Why do patients seek care at medical tourism destinations? 4 1.3.1 Low Cost 4 1.3.2 Avoid Waiting lists 6 1.3.3 Procedure not available in home country 6 1.3.4 Procedures unavailable or restricted by society and/or legal system 7 1.3.5 Tourism and vacations 7 1.3.6 Privacy and Confidentiality 7 Chapter 2 Global Market overview of Medical Tourism......

The Approved Destination Status (ADS) Code of Conduct requires that all buses and coaches used for ADS tours must be BCA Star Graded three stars or higher. The ADS system is based on a bilateral tourism arrangement between the governments of New Zealand and the People’s Republic of China that allows groups of Chinese nationals to travel as tourists to New Zealand. Compliance with the ADS system is monitored by the government agency, Tourism New Zealand. Bus and coach operators providing services for ADS tours are also required to become Qualmark endorsed. The Qualmark assessment criteria for bus and coach operators stipulates that a minimum of 50% of an operators fleet must be of a demonstrated standard of appointment (e.g. BCA Star Graded) appropriate to the target market.

...from both east and west. Following this time, events developing in China and the Roman Empire motivated Indian traders to seek a new port for their rich trade. Melaka was chosen, based mainly on its advantageous location -- it was sheltered from strong monsoon winds, thus the port was able to operate year-round. Melaka 's profitable position was envied by many and resulted in the Portuguese invasion in 1511. Later, in 1641, the Dutch defeated the Portuguese and reigned until 1815 when the British Empire took over. After World War II, there was a resurgence of Malayan nationalism leading to the Declaration of Independence for the Federation of Malaya from the British Empire on August 31, 1957. Malaysia at the time was comprised 13 states, including Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak. In 1963 two federal territories were formed. Singapore later withdrew from the Federation in 1965.
