LONDON – Low unemployment rate and continuously expanding economy continued to drive growth of outbound and domestic tourism in China in the past year. In 2015, the Chinese inbound tourism grew by 2.3% and totaled 56.9 million trips. The number of domestic trips reached 2.1 million, registering 9.9% YoY growth. Meanwhile, the number of international departures increased by 12%. This robust growth is largely attributed to favourable promotional campaigns carried out by the Chinese tourism board.

Arrivals from Japan, which is the key source market, followed a downward trend during 2013-2015 given the appreciation of the Chinese currency against Japan’s yen. Meanwhile, Chinese arrivals to Japan increased considerably (by nearly 114%) in the past year.

In the years ahead, the number of inbound trips is likely to grow at a 4.3% CAGR and reach 70.4 million in 2020. Outbound trips are anticipated to climb to 177.4 million.
