‘Mysterious China’ pips ‘Incredible India’


BEIJING 
Even in tourism stakes, China has stolen a march over India. What started as a trickle a decade ago is turning out to be a flood as China played host to over six lakh Indian tourists in 2012. The corresponding number of Chinese tourists visiting India was 1.5 lakh. Lured by budget tours and low-cost shopping attractions, over six lakh Indians visited China last year, a tour operator said.

“Name any top Chinese city, you can find Indian tour groups visiting places like Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Xian,” Yaofeng Liang, general manager of the Beijing Nimbus International Service Company Ltd said, highlighting the growing trend in the communist giant’s tourism sector.

It appears that the ‘Mysterious China’ campaign is paying off better dividends while the ‘Incredible India’ campaign in China is struggling to shore up the numbers.
