China Outbound Travel Market Source: World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) China is the most populated country in the world and the world’s second largest economy. China is also one of the fastest growing travel markets in the world, both in terms of international visitor arrivals and expenditure abroad China is the third largest spender in the world after Germany (US$ 86 billion) and the United States (US$ 79 billion). Chinese travellers spent US$ 73 billion in 2011, a more than three-fold increase from 2005, when expenditure was US$ 22 billion. Thanks to rising disposable incomes, rapid urbanization and relaxations of restrictions on foreign travel, outbound trips from China have grown an average 19% a year since 2000. Chinese had taken 34.5 million trips abroad (2006). By 2011, this figure had risen to over 70 million, and continues to increase steadily.
