Influx of Chinese tourists staying at caravan parks around Australia | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

Chinese tourists are flocking to caravan parks or hitting the road in campervans. Buoyed by the influx, one of the country's leading caravan park operators is now offering its managers cheat sheets in Mandarin to help them communicate with guests while major campervan hiring company Britz Maui is providing them with DVDs to explain the road rules. Big4 Holiday Parks said Chinese tourists now make up their second largest market behind local tourists. Chinese tourists are second after locals in terms of both visitors and revenue. TTF's CEO said 100 million Chinese are forecast to take international holidays this year alone, providing local tourism operators with a great chance to cash in. "With our beautiful natural landscape, our friendliness and the freedom and flexibility provided by caravanning, it's little wonder the Chinese are embracing the Australian road trip."
