Example text

Only from the 1990s, domestic tourism became acknowledged as an important part of the service industry, acting as a crucial element in the ideological switch from rural socialism to urban consumerism in China (Arlt, 2006). 3 CHINESE OUTBOUND TOURISM: A DEMAND-DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT The gates to outbound travel were opened only very reluctantly by the Chinese government in several stages, not the least under the impression of the Berlin Wall – and subsequently the Eastern Bloc communist governments – falling under the chants of Reisefreiheit (Freedom of travel).

The occupancy of the bigger part of China by Japan in the 1930s and the civil war of 1945–1949, however, quickly stopped these activities. For the Chinese living in the former British colony of Hong Kong, in the former Portuguese territory of Macau, and on the island of Taiwan, tourism has been a source of income as hosts and as a basis of personal enjoyment and business as travelers for many decades since 1949. The last restrictions on foreign travel were removed for Taiwanese passport holders in 1979.

Quantitatively, China’s outbound tourism features remarkable growth in the number of travelers and their spending; qualitatively, both the structure of tourists and their demands are changing. For Arlt, China’s outbound tourism has entered a new era, shifting from package tour to self-organized tour, from sightseeing to experience, and from brand to lifestyle. Looking to the future, he proposed that a third wave of China’s outbound travelers with emerging niche segments and diverse demand is on the horizon.
