American Travel Agencies Welcome Chinese Tourists

Ming Pao, Posted: Jun 18, 2008

San Francisco--The American Travel Association recently approved its 90 members to receive tourists from China. Among the first authorized travel agencies, five are based in San Francisco, including AAA Sojourns and Go West Tours.

The first group of 80 tourists will be arriving from Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. The trip lasts around 10 days. According to the American Commerce Department, an average Chinese tourist spends more than $10,00 for a trip to America, higher than what people from other countries spend. In accordance with the Sino-American agreement, by 2011, the number of Chinese tourists to the U.S. each year will be 600,000, an 80 percent increase from 2006. It is expected to stimulate America's slow economy.
