According to a report by Xinhua News Agency, China is becoming one of the most popular tourists’ destinations for Indian travellers and both the nations are working together to boost the influx of tourists.
The report also stated that the number of outbound tourists from India will reach 50 million overall by 2020 an increase from 21.87 million in 2016. In recent years, Indians have chosen China as a favourable destination and more and more Indians are visiting China and exploring tourism opportunities.
Apparently, China and India started to strengthen tourism cooperation back in 2015. In that same year, “Visit India Year” in China was hosted, and in 2016, “Visit China Year” in India was launched. Both the countries are working on improving tourism sector by providing easy visa services and direct flights to the travellers.
Tian Xin, an official from the New Delhi office of the China National Tourism Administration, said, ”Both countries have natural advantages in tourism development, noting that both also have friendly people and abundant tourism resources. Besides those attributes, the low cost of transportation between the two countries and the same consumption levels have both contributed to mutual tourism development.”
