The first half of 2017 saw an average of 7.3 million people travel to China, the most in the world, according to the United Nations.
With an economy of more than $1 trillion and one of the most ambitious climate change strategies, the government has a big task ahead of it.
The International Tourism Association said the country has more than doubled its tourism industry since 2015.
It also said China is expected to overtake the United States in the number of tourists this year, and the growth will be driven by tourism to China’s booming metropolis.
But for many travelers, the world is only getting started.
Travellers are going back to their favorite destinations, like Disneyland, in hopes of making new friends.
“They’re going back because they’re just going to have so much fun and so much to see,” said Sarah Kwan, who is from San Francisco.
But she added she’s not going to stop coming back.
Kwan said she’s always been fascinated by China and is glad to be back, even if it’s for a little while.
Even though it’s the year of the pandemic, she says she’s still planning to see her parents this summer.
When she’s in the city, Kwan said it’s always nice to get to know people and to meet other tourists, like her mother and brother.
For Kwan and others, it’s important to have a few weeks in the country before they head back to the States, and so she’s been planning her trip carefully.
“I don’t want to have any surprises,” Kwan told Entertainment Weekly.
I’m not planning on missing anything,” she added.
