China travel and Chinese tourists

21 Mar

The biggest tourist spenders in Taiwan are, not Japanese, not Americans, not Koreans, but mainland Chinese. I know mainland tourists like to buy a lot of stuff in Taiwan, even from convenience stores like the one near my company. But to outspend Japanese, Singaporeans, and other tourists by a significant amount every day, that’s quite surprising.

The New York Times’ frugal traveler takes a trip up the Yangtze on just US$50 per day. He seems to be having a pleasant trip.
