Chinese Tourists

In spite of us thinking we are a huge destination for Chinese tourists, NZ is number 23 only their list of destinations. They are expected to make 80 million overseas trips this year. (ref Hotels Combined)

Hong Kong is number 1 with between 6 million and 9 million tourists from China (depends on source). France, at number 11, only gets around 600,000.
