We delve deeper into various types of tourism and discuss in-depth about how to attract Chinese tourists, whilst also bearing in mind exactly who will want to travel. Millennials? Couples? Families? Depending on the type of tourism, there are different aspects of the market to look at. Long-term traveller satisfaction is key, but again, how do we achieve this?
