The Hospitality and Tourism Industry in China : New Growth, Trends, and Developments Hardback

Edited by Jinlin Zhao

Part of the Advances in Hospitality and Tourism series


Here is an insightful look into the great changes in the hospitality and tourism industry in China in recent years.

The steady growth of the GDP in China, the increasing middle-income population, lifestyle changes of the Chinese people, and fast infrastructure development (speed trains, airports, highways, and seaports, linking many mega cities, mid-level cities, and townships) have all had a significant effect on the Chinese hospitality industry, which is booming in China.

With much more money in their pockets, the Chinese are spending more than 60% of their disposable income on food and travel.

International food and hotel chains have responded by increasing their presence in China, and in turn, new domestic restaurant and hotel chains have sprung up to compete for the business.

With chapters by scholars from various universities in China and the United States, these issues and more are covered in this new volume.

Readers will gain a true understanding of the current development of Chinese hospitality and tourism industry.
