  • Mainland China became the world’s biggest source of foreign tour- ists in 2012. The United Nations World Tourism Organization counted 83.2 million Chinese citizens traveling abroad, a 395.7% increase from 2002. These newly affluent travelers spent $102 billion while they traveled, making them the biggest-spending tourists. Despite slowing economic growth at home, the trend continues una- bated. In the first five months of 2013, 37.9 million Chinese traveled abroad, an increase of 17.3% over the year before. The massive increase in Chinese outbound travel is not lost on gov- ernments, brands and hotels. Especially as Western economies falter, leaving citizens with less cash and confidence to travel abroad, tour- ism organizations across the world are proactively luring in their share of these increasingly affluent visitors to their countries. This could become more challenging as the market for Chinese tourists becomes increasingly sophisticated and fragmented. This report examines the trend toward independent, rather than group tourism and how travel providers can reach them. Introduction Skift report #1 2013 2
